Keep that umbrella handy.

A brief respite in the San Diego area's wet winter will end this week as yet another storm sweeps through, bringing widespread showers across the county over the next several days.

Due to the predicted intensity of some of the downpours, the National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a flash-flood watch for local coastal, valley and mountain communities, effective from late Wednesday night through Thursday evening.

The rains are expected to deliver around 1.5 inches of moisture near the coast, as much as 2.5 in the foothills, 3 to 8 inches in the mountains and 0.5 of an inch to 2 inches in the deserts.

From Friday through Monday, the NWS reports a large low-pressure atmospheric system over the western United States will bring chances of mild precipitation. That'll continue the region's several-month spate of frequently stormy weather.
