Rain has tapered off Friday afternoon, but we may see a few showers tonight. Another storm system will arrive on Christmas.
The second storm, will bring lighter rainfall and most of it will fall on Christmas. The chance will be better in the afternoon with some light showers lingering into Sunday morning.
Christmas Rain totals:
Coast/Inland: 0.10 - 0.30"
Mountains: 0.5 - 1"
Deserts: T - 0.10"
The winds will pick back up Saturday afternoon, averaging between 20 to 30 mph with greater gusts into our mountains. The winds will continue through Monday.
Temperatures will cool down to below normal, with the cool and unsettled pattern is expected to continue into next week, through the end of 2021.
We could see at least two more systems next week with rain and mountain snow. The timing looks like Monday into Tuesday, then Wednesday into Thursday. We could see some moderate rainfall on Monday with snow levels dropping to 4,000 feet. The colder air will bring a better chance for snow accumulations for the second time this season from Julian to Palomar Mountain.
