San Diego's gearing up for a wet one—with showers starting Wednesday and not letting up till Friday, brace yourselves for what could be a series of soggy days. In a statement obtained by NWS San Diego's X feed, expectations are set for "light rain with 0.25" to 0.50" at lower elevations," while keeping their cards close regarding the higher ground.

Forecasters with the National Weather Service, reported by Facebook, think San Diego County will get the most rain, but they admit the exact amounts are still uncertain.

According to the locals at FOX5 San Diego, a low-pressure system is playing the rainmaker, with the strongest part expected to hit Wednesday afternoon or evening with rain chances lingering until Friday.  

Coastal communists from San Ysidro to Oceanside look set to experience a 55 to 65% chance of rain. Meanwhile, tucked in the inland valley and mountain areas might see about a 50% chance of precipitation, and, as FOX5 San Diego paints the picture, "the amount of precipitation will likely be on the lighter side, mostly 0’25” to 0.50″ in some areas." 

If you're up in the mountains, you might see some light snow on the San Bernardino peaks. However, the snow level is dropping faster, down to about 5,500 to 6,000 feet. After this week's weather, San Diego can look forward to drying off and warming up into the following week.
