The extended forecast for San Diego County includes intermittent rain for the rest of the year with chances for snow in our mountains, according to the National Weather Service.

Light showers early Sunday were part of the lingering remnants of a powerful storm system that dumped inches of rain across the county thanks to the help from an atmospheric river.

A wind advisory is in effect Sunday until noon for county deserts and mountains. A winter storm watch will be in effect Monday afternoon through late Monday night for county mountains as we can expect some snow.

This storm system is expected to move out of the region by Sunday morning for some clearer skies throughout the day. But don't expect dry conditions to last long. Another weather system is moving in early next week with a chance for more rain, Midcap said.

"We've got a cooler, blustery week of weather in store for us," Midcap said. "We're done with storm system number one. Number two is on the way, number three after that -- and maybe number four after that, but I'll keep you posted on that."

The next low-pressure system from the northwest is expected to bring strong gusty west winds and another round of precipitation for Monday through early Tuesday with the most significant precipitation for Monday afternoon and evening, the NWS said.

We can expect rainfall from one-third to 1 inch at the coast and 1 to 2 inches in the mountains. We can expect snow to fall at around 3,500 feet late Monday night and several inches of snowfall is possible in the mountains above 4,000 to 4,500 feet.
