SAN DIEGO — Morning commuters woke up to wet roads and rain showers Thursday morning, with more expected by afternoon.

The first wave of rain was light and intermittent, but radar showed a heavier front that will move over the county around lunchtime, when precipitation will be more significant. You can expect rainy conditions to lift from the northwest to southeast Thursday evening, according to the National Weather Service.

In local mountains, snow levels were expected as low as 6,500 feet with several inches possible.

A wind advisory was also in place Thursday until 4 p.m. for San Diego mountains and deserts, along with parts of several other Southern California counties. Southwest winds were expected at 20 to 30 mph with gusts of up to 50 mph.

Friday is expected to be mostly clear of both wind and rain, but it’s looking increasingly likely that a significant storm will come through Southern California early next week, according to the NWS. An atmospheric river will start moving down the coast Monday.
