Area gets sprinkling of rain; storm expected

Light rain fell in San Diego County early Tuesday ahead of a strong Pacific storm headed for the region.

The storm will move through northern and central California late Tuesday through early Wednesday and bring high surf, gusty winds and rain to San Diego County this week, according to the National Weather Service.

“The storm will generate a large west swell which will move through the coastal waters Wednesday through Friday, bringing high surf to exposed west-facing beaches, with some breakers exceeding 10 feet possible. This surf will cause dangerous rip currents,” according to an NWS advisory.

Only a few hundredths of an inch of rain are expected in the southern half of the county this week, while the North County is expected to receive a few tenths of an inch, according to the Weather Service.

Tuesday’s forecast called for mostly cloudy skies throughout the county, with a 20 percent chance of rain along the coast and in the valleys. Wind gusts of up to 25 miles per hour were likely in the mountains and deserts Tuesday, according to the Weather Service.

The agency forecast a 50 percent chance of rain in coastal, valley and mountain areas, and a 20 percent chance in the deserts.

Highs today were expected to range from the mid-60s to low 70s in coastal and valley areas, high 50s to high 60s in the mountains and high 70s to low 80s in the deserts.
