Showers and maybe even some thunderstorms are threatening to put a damper on your outdoor plans this weekend.
As of midday a lot of rain was moving east to west over Baja, just to our south, as well as north over the Imperial County. Around 2 p.m. Friday, rain started to fall near downtown and Mission Valley. While the best chance of rain in San Diego is in our mountains this weekend, we could see some sprinkles or showers just about anywhere including the beach.
The National Weather Service calls this the most intense monsoonal flow out of Mexico so far this summer and it's bringing as much as a 30-40% chance of measurable rain our way. Predictions are for only a few hundredths of an inch of rain in any one place but, if thunderstorms develop, those amounts could increase.
The threat of rain stay with us into Sunday morning. The Padre games against the Cardinals and the Julian Starfest are just a couple of the many local activities that might be adversely affected should we end up getting some real rain.
