An eastward-moving Pacific system is expected to bring cooler weather with scattered showers and thunderstorms to San Diego County on Thursday.
The system began moving south along the California coast Wednesday night and will move inland across Southern California late Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.
In Lemon Grove, today's high temperature is forecast to be 67° degrees, with a low of 59° degrees. With wet weather and a dip in the mercury, it's finally time to bundle up and stay dry after weeks of summer heat that stretched into fall.
Around the county, daytime temperatures today will be in the 60s in coastal and valley areas, the 40s and 50s in the mountains, the 60s in the high deserts and in the 70s to low 80s in the lower deserts, according to an NWS advisory.
General rainfall amounts from the system are expected to be a tenth to a half-inch, with some areas seeing more depending on where any thunderstorms strike.
The current 7,000-feet snow level will drop to around 6,500 feet this evening, according to the weather service.
