According to recent reports, San Diego County residents can expect rain and even snow in certain areas this weekend as a storm front moves through the area. Gusty winds as well as showers will begin on Friday evening and continue throughout the weekend, with rainfall totaling from a half-inch on the coast up to two inches in mountain areas.
While most areas of the county will see temperatures drop from the mid-60s to the 50s overnight and stay cool over the weekend, mountain areas could see some snow, particularly in elevations above 5,000 feet. Winter storm travel advisories have been posted for those driving on mountainous passes. Up to eight inches of snow is expected in the highest elevations.
A wind advisory has also been issued for the desert areas of the county from Friday through Sunday. Sustained west winds of 25 to 35 miles per hour and gusts up to 55 miles per hour are expected.
HEAVY RAINS AND SNOWS LEAD TO FLOODING
Heavy rains and snows often lead to flash flooding. A flash flood is one that occurs quickly in a limited area due to a sudden influx of water, often due to mountain runoff or heavy storms. Flash floods can cause thousands of dollars of damage to your home in a matter of minutes and have been associated with injury and even death when residents are not warned in time to escape rising waters.
PROPER CLEANING IS A TOP PRIORITY
While safety is your first priority, you also want to be sure that your home is properly cleaned after a flood. Professional cleaning avoids mold and mildew problems and helps you restore your home to its former condition.
Furthermore, professional cleaning prevents the health problems that can be associated with floodwater. Floods can bring mud and debris that harbor bacteria and other toxins. Be sure to have a professional cleaning company evaluate your damage and clean your home thoroughly before returning after a flood.
