It’s going to be a wet weekend in San Diego according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

“A major storm system will move in from the Pacific on Friday, bringing heavy rainfall and the potential of flash flooding to Southern California Friday through Saturday with the greatest impact period forecast to be Friday night,” NWS predicts. 

Late last month several storms wreaked havoc on San Diego’s landscape causing major damage as heavy winds and flooding uprooted trees across the county.

The NWS is predicting the same weather conditions arriving with this storm may lead to a repeat of last month’s widespread destruction.  

“Two day rainfall totals will likely be substantial, along with very strong winds making for hazardous travel conditions and possible tree damage,” according to the NWS. “Heavy rainfall rates may cause flash flooding, debris flows and possible river flooding.”

This storm will likely taper off on Sunday, with light rainfall lingering into Monday.
