An intense low-pressure system is diving south out of the Northwest. It will enhance the onshore flow and bring us a thicker marine layer on Friday along with cooler temperatures and breezy conditions.
Rain or shine, send your weather photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
On Saturday, we could be waking up to showers or it may hold off until early afternoon. Regardless, late Saturday is looking pretty soggy with periods of steady rainfall overnight, tapering off to showers early Sunday.
We should get a break for Sunday afternoon with a colder wave moving through overnight into Monday morning.
This system not only has the potential of bringing some decent rain to much of the County but also a little snow to the tops of Laguna and Palomar Mountains.
