Rain expected to clear

Another Pacific storm rolled into San Diego County this morning, but the skies are expected to clear later Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

“Totals will be probably a quarter- to a half-inch” of rain, NWS meteorologist Tina Stall said.

The California Highway Patrol logged 56 crash reports on the region’s highways and freeways between midnight and 9 a.m. – 41 of them between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. The CHP typically receives 50-75 crash reports over the course of a day without rain.

In addition to being wet, it was likely to be windy today in coastal and valley areas, with wind gusts of up to 25 miles per hour this afternoon, according to the NWS.

For the deserts, the Weather Service issued a wind advisory until 7 p.m., with wind gusts around 55 miles per hour expected.

The storms that have struck the region since Thursday left several inches of rain around the county and snow on local mountain peaks, generally above 4,500 feet.

Today’s forecast called for a total of 9 inches of snow to accumulate in the mountains as a result of the three storms.

A winter weather advisory will be in effect until 7 p.m. in the mountains.

Temperatures were likely to peak today in the mid- to upper 50s in coastal and valleys areas, low to mid-40s in the mountains and high 50s to low 60s in the deserts, according to the NWS.

No rain was in the forecast for Tuesday and only a 20 percent chance of showers was in store for most of the county Wednesday, according to the Weather Service.
