A trough of low pressure from the Pacific Northwest is moving into San Diego County and is expected to bring rain and cool temperatures beginning on Wednesday, October 10, 2013.

A trough of low pressure from the Pacific Northwest will cause temperatures to dip to the 50s and 60s in coastal and valley areas and 30s and 40s in the mountains.

Snow could fall on the highest mountain peaks at 6,000 feet, according to the National Weather Service, though accumulation would be small.

Rainfall is expected to measure approximately two-tenths of an inch along the coast and a quarter of an inch in the valleys, according to NWS.

The agency also issued a wind advisory in the mountains and deserts from 5 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday, warning winds in excess of 35 mph could cause property damage.

"The winds will make driving difficult, especially for motorists with high profile vehicles,'' an NWS advisory said. "Watch for broken tree limbs and downed power lines.''
