Warmer Weather Forecast Thursday After Storm Brings Rain, Snow to San Diego Area

The latest in a lengthy spate of blustery storms making for a wet and icy winter in the San Diego area brought more widespread precipitation and stiff winds to the region Wednesday, but Thursday will be sunny and warmer after a cold morning.

By late Wednesday morning, the unsettled atmospheric system out of the northwest, which moved over the county early in the workweek, had delivered more than three inches of rain in some areas, scattered hail and upward of 10 more inches of snow in the mountains, the National Weather Service reported.
