SAN DIEGO — Light rain showers fell throughout San Diego County and snow fell in the mountains as a storm moved through Southern California Monday morning, according to the National Weather Service.
The low pressure system will continue moving southeast Monday before reaching Baja California by Monday evening, NWS meteorologist Miguel Miller said.
The storm was expected to produce up to a quarter-inch of rain in coastal and inland valley areas, while up to four-inches of rain could fall in the deserts, Miller said.
Snow levels will drop to around 5,000 feet in the mountains Monday, where between 3-8 inches of snow is expected to fall, Miller said.
A winter weather advisory warning of potentially hazardous driving conditions in the mountains will be in effect until 4 p.m. Monday.
The rain is expected to halt by Monday evening, then fair and seasonal weather will set in, lasting through Friday, when a second storm system could bring another round of precipitation, Miller said.
High temperatures Monday could reach 67 degrees near the coast and inland, 68 in the western valleys, 61 near the foothills, 52 in the mountains and 65 in the deserts.
