Rain and wind predicted tonight and tomorrow

SAN DIEGO - An approaching rainstorm might impact Monday morning's commute and will bring strong winds to San Diego County mountains and deserts, a National Weather Service meteorologist said today.

The system should move into San Diego County Monday morning and drop around a tenth of an inch of rain along the coast and a half inch in the mountains, said Steve Vanderburg of the NWS.

It should be dry by afternoon in most areas of the county, Vanderburg said.

The NWS will post a High Wind Warning for the mountains and deserts effective tonight and Monday for powerful gusts on the mountaintops and desert slopes, he said.

''If you're driving into the desert you'll want to be prepared,'' Vanderburg said,

While temperatures will be chilly, not much snow is expected in the San Diego County mountains.

He said the weather will warm up for the middle and end of the week.

Another system is approaching that will cool down next weekend, but its too early to tell if it will bring any rain, according to Vanderburg.
