San Diego could be hit with rain, snow and high winds next week in the first major fall storm
San Diego County could see significant rain, high elevations and strong winds next week as the first major fall storm surges through the region, according to the National Weather Service.
Forecasters say their computer models indicate the system will arrive from the North Pacific Wednesday and last Friday.
“It’s still early to know what will happen, but this could be part of a system that affects all of California and maybe other parts of the western United States,” said Liz Schenk, a forecaster.
Parts of inland San Diego County have received decent rain in recent weeks. But the region has recorded below-average rainfall over the past two years, and the potential for wildfires remains high.
San Diego International Airport has recorded 0.09 inches of rain since October 1st, which is 0.30 inches below normal.
