SAN DIEGO - A late-autumn storm will make for a brisk and blustery end to the work week, ushering in roughly 24 hours of moderate to heavy rain, stiff winds and below-average temperatures beginning Thursday afternoon, forecasters advised.

The cloudbursts will likely deliver totals of about three-quarters of an inch of moisture along the coast, an inch or so in the foothills and as much as 2.75 inches in some mountain locales, according to the National Weather Service.

Damaging winds will be possible, and temperatures will drop significantly, the NWS reported.

The downpours will dwindle to scattered showers Friday afternoon and cease altogether that evening, making way for a fair but chilly weekend, meteorologists predicted.
