If you have plans of ‘playing hooky’ from work to play golf or other outside activities today (Tuesday) or tomorrow in ‘America’s Finest’, you may want to reschedule your plans for another time.

Rain is expected to arrive in San Diego County later today as another winter storm slides into the region, bringing with it rain and a chance of heavy snow in the mountains. According to the National Weather Service, there’s a 50 percent chance of measurable precipitation today for the beaches, valleys and mountains. The weather service also predicts a slight chance of thunderstorms Tuesday night throughout the county, with some possible producing hail.

It’s definitely a cold front, as forecasters say that temperatures today (Tuesday) are expected to only reach in the high 50s to low 60s for the beaches and valleys, low 40s to low 50s in the mountains and only in the low to mid-60s in the deserts. The thermometer will drop further tonight; to the 40s along the coast and in the deserts, low 30s in the valleys and mid-20s in the mountains. This will likely cause the snow level to drop to only around 3,000 feet overnight, with possibly up to 5 inches of snow and the National Weather Service is planning to issue a winter storm watch for the mountain areas from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday afternoon.
