In the coastal and valley regions, Lower Oats Flats, located just north of Escondido, received the highest rainfall at 1.68 inches, followed by Santee at 1.19 inches. Both Fashion Valley and Point Loma got 1.11 inches of rain.

There might be a few light showers during the day, but mostly, the storm had passed through the county by early Wednesday morning, according to NBC 7’s Meteorologist Sheena Parveen.

This rainy season has brought more rain than usual to San Diego. Since October 1, which marks the start of the water year, San Diego International Airport has recorded 9.21 inches of rain. This is just a bit less than the city’s yearly average of 9.79 inches.

February is often the rainiest month in San Diego, as mentioned by NBC 7’s meteorologist Brooke Martell.

Martell noted that the rain San Diego has received not only this water year but also since last winter, has been sufficient to keep the area clear of drought conditions.

Currently, the U.S. Drought Monitor shows that less than 1% of California-Nevada is in a drought, a significant improvement from being 100% in drought just a year ago.
