The main cold front brought another round of steady rain in the afternoon, but the front is clearing the area taking the rain with it. Gusty winds may stick around into Friday with gusts averaging 25 to 30 mph over the mountains and deserts on Friday.

We will enjoy dry weather Friday through Sunday, but temperatures will remain chilly and below normal. The weather this weekend is perfect to clear drains, gutters, as our first winter storm arrives next week.

As we look ahead to next week, a trough brewing in the Pacific northwest will tap into an atmospheric river, and we're looking at rain starting Monday and lasting through Wednesday morning. The heaviest rain will fall on Tuesday with a chance for snow in our mountains.

Next week's storms could bring 1-1.5" for the Coast and Valleys, 2-4" in the mountains, and about 0.5 to 1" in our deserts. Snow will be possible in Julian, Mt. Laguna, and Palomar Mtn. The cool weather patter will continue with below average temperatures through the middle of next week.

Stay tune to all the changes, as the storms approach the area.

Thursday's Highs:
Coast: 55-61°
Inland: 57-62°
Mountains: 46-56°
Deserts: 66-71°
