Rain expected through Sunday

Light rain fell around San Diego County early Friday, signaling the start of a series of storms expected to bring wet weather back into Southern California this weekend, forecasters said.

A string of weather systems traveling over the east Pacific will be moving to San Diego County starting Friday and continuing through Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.

Snow at higher elevations in the mountains is likely, but little snow accumulation is expected in San Diego County.

Forecasters said the first system will bring light to moderate rain showers Friday morning. It will be followed by another period of light to moderate rain Saturday morning. One final round of moderate to heavy rain and snow is possible late Saturday into Sunday morning, according to the Weather Service.

In between each system, light showers may linger near the foothills and mountains due to a moist westerly flow.

The Weather Service said the storms should produce between .75 and 1.75 inches of rain at the coast and in the valleys, and 2 to 4 inches at the foothills and along coastal mountain slopes. A half-inch or less of rain is expected in the deserts.

A flash flood water may be issued Saturday, according to the Weather Service. The main areas of concern are the south coast near the Tijuana River and the San Diego River.
