Bundle up, San Diego: Cold, wet weather is on the way.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Wednesday night into Friday morning, saying rain and snow is possible in San Diego County.

Thunderstorms are also a possibility on Thursday and showers could linger into the weekend, according to NWS. Hail, gusty winds and lightning could also be a result of the thunderstorms.

There is also a coastal flood advisory because of King Tides on Thursday morning. The "astronomically high" tides could cause erosion and flooding in Point Loma, San Diego Bay and Imperial Beach.

Several inches of snow are expected in mountain areas above 5,000 feet and lighter snow is expected in lower elevations as well.

NWS said travelers should be wary of slippery roads and limited visibility.
