    Winds and rain descended Friday evening on San Diego County, moving from west to east in quick fashion.

    The National Weather Service has issued an aviation storm warning until midnight calling for gusts around 30 knots and the potential for cloud to ground lightning.

    A severe thunderstorm warning also was issued for western San Diego County.

    The storm was thought to bring the drought-stricken region between .25 to .50 inches in the areas west of the mountains.

    “This could be a wet evening commute for you,” said NBC 7 Meteorologist Jodi Kodesh.

    San Diegans can expect strong winds along the coast until 10 p.m.

    Scattered, light showers may occur overnight with a small percent of a chance of rain on Saturday, Kodesh said.

    The snow level doesn’t drop down until late tonight to about 5,000 feet, she added.

    There is potential for another storm on Sunday.
