February 13, 2017 (San Diego’s East County) – More wet weather will drench Southern California starting Friday, as the jet stream moves south across the Pacific, tapping into a rich moisture supply.  The National Weather Service predicts heavy precipitation with flooding potential, as well as strong and potentially damage winds blowing south to southwest, starting late Friday.

Strong winds could case falling trees and power outages.  Mountains could receive 3 to 7 inches of precipitation, while coastal and valley areas are expected to get 2 to 4 inches, with 1 to 2 inches in deserts from Friday through Sunday.

Heavy snow above 5,500 feet could create hazardous travel conditions, with several feet at resorts over 6500 feet.

In coastal areas, conditions for small crafts will be hazardous due to strong south winds and combined seas of ten feet or more.
