Light rain will develop overnight with gusty westerly winds for our mountains and deserts.

Showers will develop after midnight with steady rain becoming more widespread late morning into the afternoon.

The coast and inland communities could see between 0.10 to 0.33" while our mountains will see the most with an average of 0.5 to 1" of rain. Deserts will see less than 0.10"

We dry out Friday through Sunday, but temperatures will remain 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.

Wednesday's Highs:
Coast: 58-62°
Inland: 55-59°
Mountains: 44-51°
Deserts: 65-70°
