San Diego already picked up more than the average rain we typically see in the month of October, but more showers are expected. San Diego got 0.64" through Tuesday morning, the average for the month is 0.57" this is a great start to the season, and more rain is on the way.

Tonight, will be drier with clear skies in the evening. Clouds will increase during the day on Wednesday, with patchy fog expected to start the morning along the coast. The clouds could provide some light drizzle, but we should be drier. 

Another storm is set to bring more rain late Thursday into Friday. This system will bring winter-like conditions with cooler weather, gusty winds, and steady rain. There remains some uncertainty with timing and totals, but preliminary forecast totals look to range between .25 to .70". Gusty winds will target the mountains and deserts. Temperatures will drop below average up to 5 to 15 degrees below normal. We can expect 60s for the coast and inland, 50s in the mountains, and 70s and 80s in the deserts. Just in time for the weekend, we will dry out and temperatures will recover. 

The weekend will bring sunny skies during the day, but patchy clouds for the coast and inland valleys overnight into early morning.

Dry weather may not last, it is possible we could track another system next week. Stay with the Pinpoint Weather Team as we tackle each system and what they bring to our county.
