San Diegans woke up Wednesday to rain and a wet morning commute as spring showers moved in across the county.
NBC 7 meteorologist Jodi Kodesh said moderate rain had swept parts of the North County, Eastlake and South Bay during the early morning. Light, spotty showers are expected across San Diego County throughout the day, including mist and drizzle in the downtown San Diego area.
“Take an umbrella and jacket with you. Our high temperatures are 63 or 64 degrees today,” she added.
Kodesh said the brunt of Wednesday’s rain was more likely to hit in the early morning hours. By 11 a.m., the chance of light showers will drop to about 50 percent and conditions will likely stay this way for the remainder of the day, as well as overnight.
Meanwhile, the National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a wind advisory in San Diego County mountains and deserts in effect through 11 a.m. Thursday. The advisory means west winds from 20 to 35 mph are expected in those areas, with potential gusts of up to 50 mph.
The NWS says the strongest winds will hit local mountains and deserts Wednesday afternoon and could impact some visibility for drivers out there.
Kodesh said the chance of rain will decrease to about 30 percent Thursday. By this weekend, the skies should be nice and clear and the temperatures will be higher.
