San Diego County will receive more rain than the Los Angeles area, which is only predicted to see rain through Friday. San Diego and parts of Orange County can expect to see some rain on Saturday.

There are also high surf advisories from Lompoc to Paso Robles, as well as small craft advisories for the waters off the California coastline. The NWS suggests mariners check the forecast before heading out on the ocean and staying in the harbor if it is stormy.

There are winter storm warnings in Central and Northern California in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Any higher elevation should expect some snowfall this week.

Have a safe and happy Holiday Weekend.
