SAN DIEGO -- A storm brought steady showers to San Diego County throughout the day on Wednesday.

The storm system was expected to hang over the region until Thursday morning, according to the National Weather Service. The agency issued a Flash Flood Watch that will be in effect from 6 a.m. through Wednesday afternoon in the coastal and inland valley areas as well as the mountains.


"Urban areas in the coastal and valley zones will see some street flooding where rain rates may briefly reach 0.40 inches per hour in the morning," according to the NWS. "Runoff in the mountains may also be enhanced when factoring in snow melt."

Winds along mountain ridgetops were expected to gust between 30-40 mph Wednesday, forecasters said.

High temperatures Wednesday were expected to reach 63 degrees near the coast and inland, 61 in the western valleys, 59 near the foothills, 55 in the mountains and 60 in the deserts.

Dry weather is expected Thursday and Friday, then a low pressure system will bring a chance of rain throughout the county on Saturday, forecasters said.
