San Diego County will be buffeted by an unseasonably chilly spring storm again today before drier, milder conditions return Friday, forecasters said.

By the time the unsettled weather moves east tonight, it will have dropped a quarter to three-quarters of an inch of rain in coastal and valley areas and up to 2 inches on west-facing slopes below the snow level, according to the National Weather Service.

By 7 a.m., the storm had already wreaked havoc on the morning commute.

The California Highway Patrol received 74 crash reports between midnight and 7 a.m. In good weather, the agency typically get 50-75 crash reports in a 24-hour span.

All but six of today’s early morning crashes occurred between 4 a.m. and 7 a.m., according to the CHP.

The storm, which blew in late Tuesday, has been accompanied by temperatures 15-20 degrees below normal for this time of year.

Four to 8 inches of snow is likely at elevations of more than 4,000 feet, with drifts up to 10 inches possible on the highest peaks, according to the NWS.
