Storm Brings Sprinkles To San Diego County

A storm expected to move into the region Thursday will bring daytime sprinkles and heaver rain to parts of San Diego County overnight as gusty winds continue to buffet the deserts.

National Weather Service forecasters predicted the low pressure system would bring .65 inches of rain to Palomar Mountain, .42 inches in Julian, .39 inches in Escondido, .36 inches in Ramona and about a quarter-inch in Oceanside and Alpine, along with cooler and cloudy weather through Friday. San Diego could get .16 inches of rain, with slightly greater amounts falling near Miramar and Campo.

However, forecasters said those estimates will vary due to the "convective nature of this storm system."

No rain was expected in the deserts, but west winds of 20 to 30 miles per hour will continue, along with gusts that may reach 45 mph. A weather service wind advisory for the deserts is scheduled to expire at 3 a.m. Friday.

Forecasters said the wind may lead to hazardous driving conditions, especially for motorists in high-profile vehicles. Visibility along some desert roadways could also be reduced by blowing sand and dust.
