We have a few more days of relatively calm conditions before some exciting weather heads to San Diego County. A powerful storm brings rain chances Monday evening through Wednesday morning.

Sunday will remain mild with highs in the 60s for a majority of San Diego County. There could be some frost Sunday morning.

Monday will be a bit of a transition day as a storm moves down California's coast and toward Southern California. This means clouds will build throughout the day and rain chances arrive by the evening hours.

Tuesday will bring the highest chances for precipitation. A moisture-driven storm will bring rain chances to a majority of San Diego County throughout the day Tuesday.

Wednesday, rain chances linger into the morning hours, but will not be as widespread as Tuesday. Temperatures drop Tuesday night, meaning mountains above 3,500 feet could wake up to some snow Wednesday morning. The system should be clear by Wednesday afternoon.

Strong winds will also accompany this storm. The strongest winds next week could be damaging, gusting between 50- 60 mph.

A weaker storm follows this stronger storm, bringing slight rain chances Friday.

Sunday's Highs:
Coast: 62-64°
Inland: 60-65°
Mountains: 54-60°
Deserts: 66-68°
