SAN DIEGO - Two quick-moving storms brought cooler weather, showers and gusty winds to San Diego County this weekend.

The rain kept the California Highway Patrol busy throughout the county as motorists tried to deal with the slick conditions and poor visibility.

The CHP and San Diego Fire Rescue Department have been responding to numerous traffic crashes throughout Saturday and Sunday. While none have involved serious injuries, at least one caused a SigAlert in the North County along the Interstate 15 HOV lane, according to the CHP.

Some pre-game activities that were scheduled for the Qualcomm Stadium parking lot were cancelled before the San Diego State Aztecs-Colorado State Rams football match-up.

More rain was expected to move through the county Monday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

"Winds will be rather strong this weekend, especially Sunday, with local gusts over 65 mph possible along the desert slopes of the mountains," the NWS said.

Moderate to locally heavy rains dropped up to a half inch west of the mountains and up to an inch in the metropolitan San Diego area near the west-facing slopes.

A couple inches of snow fell to 5,000 to 6,000 feet by Saturday evening into Sunday morning.
