March 17, 2017 (San Diego’s East County) -- Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts. The dry and warm weather pattern that has held for the last week will come to an end early next week as a series of storms arrive along the California Coast, the National Weather Service predicts.
Precipitation is expected to arrive in Southern California by Tuesday, with additional rounds of precipitation possible through next weekend. Several inches of snow are possible in mountain areas, with strong winds in passes and deserts that could impact travelers.
The wet weather is forecast through at least Thursday and additional storms are possible through next weekend, March 24-26.
