Cooler temperatures are on tap this weekend as a Pacific storm is set to move into the region early Sunday, the National Weather Service reported.
The storm will not be as cold or as wet as last weekend's weather system, but it is expected to drop more than half an inch of rain in Orange County. Forecasters say cool temperatures and showers will be the heaviest on Sunday. The storm could bring wind gusts of up to 30 mph and the chance of thunderstorms. Expect showers to linger into Monday.
Temperatures this weekend are not expected to drop as low as they did during last weekend's storm, when the local snow level dropped to just below 3,000 feet.
According to the Weather Service, the snow level will start out at around 7,000 feet Sunday and drop to 5,000 feet by Sunday night.
Travel through mountain passes could become dangerous as wind speeds increase, dense fog rolls in and roads become slippery, the NWS said. Extra clothing, extra water and chains are highly recommended for mountain travelers.
