Downtown San Diego saw some light rain Thanksgiving morning as thousands of runners took part in 5K and 10K runs during the holiday.
At around 9:30 a.m., participants in the Run for the Hungry at Horton Plaza Mall experienced some wet streets and drizzle, but that didn’t stop them from keeping the pace.
The rain picked up again at about 3:30 p.m. as many San Diegans made their way to Thanksgiving dinners.
NBC 7’s Whitney Southwick said most spots across the county could see a few tenths of an inch of rain, but higher amounts could be seen at local mountains.
“Don’t be surprised if you find yourself under some spotty, wet weather,” said Southwick, adding that light rain may stick around through Friday night.
San Diegans will experience partly cloudy, cool and breezy conditions throughout the holiday weekend, with a bit of a warm up by Sunday that will last through early next week, Southwick said.
Thanksgiving Day will bring temps in the high-60s for the cost, high and low-60s inland and mid-40s with gusts and lingering showers for our mountains.
Meanwhile, the National Weather Service (NWS) says a coastal flood advisory remains in effect for San Diego beaches Thanksgiving Day through noon Friday due to the highest tides of the year, the King Tides, and a storm that may cause lower-lying areas to flood. Impressive, large waves are also expected, some measuring 7.5-feet at their highest on Thanksgiving and 7.3-feet on Friday morning. Strong rip currents are also possible.
The NWS says areas especially susceptible to flooding include Imperial Beach, south Mission Beach, La Jolla Shores, Cardiff and Oceanside, particularly during those morning high tides.
