SAN DIEGO Much of the rest of the country is either recovering from snowstorms or expecting them. But San Diego should have a typically mild Christmas weekend.
San Diegans should expect clear, sunny skies through Christmas Day. The National Weather Service is forecasting calm weather through Saturday night when a chance of rain enters the picture.
Massoud Fazal is with the weather service. He says the snow pack in the Sierra Mountains is doing well for so early in the season, and that any additional rain or snow will be good to help alleviate San Diego’s drought conditions.
“We are currently in an El Nino phase, or a moderate El Nino phase. So that could still bring an additional amount of snow up in the Sierra Mountain that could help our drought situation,” he says.
Fazal says rainfall totals are above normal for December, but are still nearly five inches below normal since January.
