March 8, 2018 (San Diego) – The National Weather Service is predicting rain this weekend across San Diego County, with a “stronger and wetter” storm moving into the region next week.

Flooding and gusty winds are possible, with the heaviest rainfall locally forecast for Wednesday through Friday of next week, says Alex Tardy, forecaster with the National Weather Service in San Diego.

The rain is needed, since snowpack moisture levels are still far below normal statewide despite some recent wet weather.
