    San Diego won't be so lucky when it comes to the weather this St. Patrick's Day weekend.

    According to NBCSanDiego meteorologist Jodi Kodesh, after a clear, mostly sunny week, wet weather is expected to roll in this Friday, Saturday and Sunday and may linger into early next week.

    A storm making its way through San Diego is expected to disrupt some business over the weekend, but Saturday's St. Patrick's Day celebrations will keep drinkers inside bars.

    The storm will result in much cooler temperatures and possible periods of gusty West winds.

    The turn in the weather might put a slight damper on St. Patrick's Day festivities, particularly for San Diegans attending the outdoor "ShamROCK" block party in the Gaslamp Quarter.

    The organizers were pitching tents Saturday morning in preparation of the event, and said the celebrations would happen rain or shine.
