Whitney Southwick gives you the Morning Forecast for Thursday, May 17, 2011.
Keep your umbrella handy because we're expecting to be wet, off-and-on, the next few days.
San Diego County should see periods of hit-and-miss showers this week.
A bout of steadier rainfall is expected Tuesday afternoon, then should taper off to scattered showers into the evening.
This is a very cold storm for this time of year and could actually produce some snow accumulation up around 6,000', which would mean at least a dusting on both Mount Laguna and Palomar Mountain.
A wind advisory is now in effect through Tuesday night.
In all, we could see as much as a third of an inch of rain near the coast, more than a half inch in the valleys - an inch or more in the foothills and up to 1.5" on the west slopes of the mountains below the snow level.
The storm should be out of here by Thursday afternoon returning to partly cloudy to mostly sunny into Friday with the clouds coming back on Saturday and maybe even a little more rain by late Sunday.
