Storm pushes east, but expect more cool weather and rain

A Pacific Storm drenched much of San Diego County Saturday night and early Sunday and is now moving off to the east. But cool temperatures will continue to dominate the region for at least a week, says the National Weather Service.

And it appears that weak storms could make landfall in Southern California on Friday and Sunday.

The latest system dropped nearly 1” of rain at Palomar Mountain and at Lake Cuyamaca, and 0.89” at Lake Henshaw. San Diego International Airport reported .90” of rain, pushing its seasonal total to 5.45”, almost two inches above average, the weather service said.

Stray showers are possible on Sunday and possibly Monday, which would lift totals a bit more.

The county’s mountains were expected to get an inch of more of snow, but that didn’t happen due to a warm-ish flow of air out of the south.

Sunday’s daytime high in San Diego will be 61, which is roughly four degrees below average. It appears that Tuesday will be the warmest day of the week; the temperature will reach 67.

Forecasters say the temperature won’t get into the 70s for at least a week.
