    San Diego woke up to a chance of rain showers Thursday as a winter storm system began to move into our area.

    Rain has been heaviest north of Oceanside for the morning commute but was expected to appear in small bursts throughout the morning.

    Even though it’s the middle of January, temperatures will be mild.

    “Definitely a tropical feel to this as those clouds are coming up out of the south,” said NBC 7 San Diego meteorologist Jodi Kodesh.

    The brunt of the storm will move through before 10 a.m. In the afternoon, the chance of rain lessens but Kodesh suggests keeping your umbrella nearby.

    The chance of rain increases again Friday and is expected to linger through the weekend.

    There are only a few days left in the month, and up until now, we’ve only seen 0.21” of rain.

    January is one of the region's wettest months bringing in an average of 1.47” of precipitation.
