‘Light and Scattered' Showers to Hit San Diego

Another string of light showers and mountain snow are expected to reach San Diego Sunday as multiple advisories have been issued by the National Weather Service.

“Rain will be light and scattered in nature,” NBC 7 Meteorologist Llarisa Abreu said.

Abreu said a half-inch to a three-quarters-inch of rain is expected from the coast to the inland valleys. “Some spots may pick up an inch,” she said.

A winter weather warning is in effect until 6 a.m. Monday, according to Abreu. A possible 3 to 6 inches of snow may fall at elevations above 4,500 feet.

A wind advisory was issued, beginning at 2 p.m. and lasting until 10 p.m. Sunday, according to NWS.

“Very dangerous winds – those winds could gust between 55 and 65 miles per hour,” NBC 7 Meteorologist Brooke Landau said.

Some people are worried of the potential destruction from high winds along the coast following the devastating storm on Valentine's Day. NBC 7's Brittany Ford is in Pacific Beach with more.

NWS issued a beach hazards statement, cautioning elevated surf and strong rip currents until 4 p.m. Sunday.

Surf is expected to reach from 3 to 6 feet along the coast and as high as 7 feet south of Del Mar.

A small craft advisory will be in effect until 10 a.m. Monday.

This came after a week of record-breaking rainfall in San Diego that caused flooding, school closures, and natural destruction, including fallen trees and collapsed bluffs.

The storm that hit on Valentine's Day caused damage to an Alpine animal sanctuary and resulted in downed power lines and outages. An Escondido man was found dead in the rain-swelled Escondido Creek that day.

A man waiting in his car narrowly avoided being hit by a falling palm tree. NBC 7's Rory Devine is in Pacific Beach with more.
