Scattered rain is expected across the region Sunday bringing sweater weather in San Diego County after weeks of summerlike heat in October, according to NBC 7’s First Alert Forecast.
Measurable rain last seen in San Diego County was back on June 29, according to NBC 7's meteorologist Crystal Egger.
"An upper-level trough is deepening the onshore flow and will bring a chance of scattered showers today. The rainfall amounts will be light, ranging from 0.05 - 0.25" from the coast to the mountains," Egger said. "The rain will be out of here very early Monday (before 6 a.m.) with skies clearing to sunshine to start the workweek."
After the scattered showers Sunday and Monday, we will see moderate offshore Santa Ana winds push through the region, Egger said. The winds will be strongest through the mountains and deserts with isolated gusts to 65 mph.
There is a Wind Advisory for all areas of San Diego with Red Flag Warnings posted north where winds will be stronger and fire danger is elevated.
As of Sunday afternoon, San Diego County, San Diego Gas & Electric notified approximately 21,480 North County residents that it may have to turn off power to reduce wildfire risk Monday and Tuesday.
A dry and warmer pattern is setting up for the week ahead. At this point, Halloween looks dry and mild across the county, Egger said.
