Our meteorology team continues to closely monitor the storm, as it winds down and leaves behind significant windfall accumulation in our region. They expect scattered showers to continue through Sunday morning, with most focused over inland areas.
Gusty winds will continue over the mountains and deserts until Sunday morning when this system exits the region, and coastal areas may become breezy again Saturday night into Sunday morning.
After the storm has passed, temperatures will warm to near seasonal averages, and we'll see a little drier weather Sunday through Wednesday. Another storm system is projected to move in sometime between Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning, and is expected to bring an additional round of substantial rainfall.
Will There be Snow on Local Mountains this Weekend?
According to our principal meteorologist, Steven Vanderburg, the current storm system is a bit too warm for snow on our local mountaintop peaks. There’s a chance we could see a few flakes of snow on Mount Laguna Saturday night.
To make it worthwhile to go up to local mountains for snow play, we need a storm that brings a minimum of about 3-4 inches of snow to really be able to enjoy it. And the cold air needs to stick around for a couple days so that the snow doesn’t immediately melt.
