After this week’s warm-up across San Diego County, it’ felt a bit more like winter again Thursday with cool winds, clouds and rain on the horizon.

NBC 7 Meteorologist Sheena Parveen said locals could expect cloudy skies all day Thursday, with a chance of “fairly light rain” in the afternoon.

She said scattered showers would likely move in around the county sometime after 2 p.m.

"It's going to be chilly and breezy across the county," she added during Thursday morning's First Alert Forecast.

With the upcoming rain NBC 7's Steven Luke took a look at rain barrels to see how much rain one house can collect.

The National Weather Service said San Diego County would likely see between one-tenth and a quarter-inch of rain.

“The mountains could see a bit of a wintry mix at the highest elevations, above about 5,500 feet,” Parveen added.

The highs will be in the low-60s and the lows in the mid-40s. At the coast, temps will hover around 62. Parveen said the coast would also experience a high risk of rip currents, with surf between 3 and 5 feet.

The light rain will clear out by the time Friday rolls around. The weekend will be slightly warmer, but much more seasonable for the time of year.

“I do not see another good warm-up,” Parveen added, looking ahead several days via NBC 7’s First Alert Forecast.

Parveen said weather models were showing another round of rain as early as next Wednesday.

So, grab the umbrella for Thursday, and keep it handy for next week, too.
