Getting windier as a storm approaches with some light showers tonight into tomorrow.

It will be much cooler on Friday with temperatures dropping 5-20 degrees below normal.

Stronger winds will develop this afternoon continuing into Friday. Wind gusts up to 35mph are expected for the coast and valleys while the mountains and deserts will be under a Wind Advisory from through 6pm Friday for our mountains and deserts. Westerly winds will range from 25 to 35mph, with gusts of 55 to 60mph; and isolated gusts near 70mph.

Isolated to scattered showers are expected tonight into Friday with the best chance early morning; only a slight chance for any rain in the east county in the afternoon. Otherwise, the skies will begin to clear becoming sunnier.

Forecast totals will average between .05 to .25" with isolated amounts closer to .50" from the coast to the mountains. April has been mostly dry only picking 0.01", average for the month 0.50" so any rain this late in the season would be extremely beneficial. The deficit for San Diego for the yearly rainfall is -3.03".
