SAN DIEGO (KGTV/CNS) - Rain is expected to fall throughout San Diego County Wednesday night and continue into the morning hours of Thanksgiving Day before tapering off.

10News Meteorologist Megan Parry’s forecast calls for some possible rain after 7 p.m. Wednesday, with more scattered showers later in the evening that should last until 10 a.m. Thursday.

The overnight rainfall should leave roads slick, so anyone traveling on Turkey Day is urged to drive with caution.

Escondido and Oceanside are expected to receive around a quarter-inch of rainfall while one-tenth of an inch is expected near the coast and in the western valleys, National Weather Service meteorologists said. The mountains are expected to get between a quarter-inch and one third of an inch of rainfall and the deserts will see less than one-tenth of an inch of rainfall.

Temperature-wise, Thanksgiving Day is expected to be a cool one, with Megan’s forecast calling for highs in the mid-60s from the coast to the valleys, 40s in the mountains and low to mid-70s in San Diego’s desert areas.

A second unsettled atmospheric system could bring more gentle showers Friday night and Saturday before making way for a return of dry conditions and warmer days next week, the NWS reported.
