    The Big 3 Auto Parts Exchange is now down to the Big 2.

    San Diego Fire and Rescue and San Diego Police agreed Saturday that potential flood conditions made Qualcomm Stadium unfit to hold the 44th annual antique and collector car exchange, shutting down the second day of the three-day operation.

    Flooding forced the stadium's southern parking lot to undergo a limited evacuation in the morning. In response, an event organizer said he expected the exchange to operate rain or shine, but authorities ultimately canceled the event, scheduled to run from the 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    A decision for Sunday, penciled to start at 8 a.m. and close at 2 p.m., has yet to be made.

    According to the National Weather Service, a storm that arrived in San Diego early Saturday morning could produce thunderstorms after 10 a.m. Heavy rainfall is also possible with west wind between 15 and 20 mph and gusts as high as 30 mph.

    A flood advisory was issued Saturday at 7:04 a.m. and will end at 10:15 a.m.
