The first storm, which was brining rain to Northern California Monday morning, could bring rain to San Diego County after 10 p.m. Monday night, Handman said. It could bring 0.25 inches of precipitation along the coast, with more than 0.5 inches in the mountains, Handman said. The snow level is expected to be around 5,500 feet, or the very tops of the mountains in San Diego County.
A Wednesday's shot of rain could bring 0.5 inches to the coast and 1-2 inches in the mountains, according to Handman. The snow-level is expected to drop to 5,000 feet.
More rain is possible on Saturday, but the county should dry out next week, Handman said.
The National Weather Service is calling for a heavy ocean swell, which will bring high surf and rip currents to the beaches Monday night and Tuesday morning.
