Light Rain And Snow Expected Throughout San Diego County
Light rain showers will continue Monday throughout San Diego County and snow is expected to fall in the mountains as a storm moves through Southern California, according to the National Weather Service.
The low pressure system will continue moving southeast Monday before reaching Baja California by this evening, NWS meteorologist Miguel Miller said.
The storm is 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.
