    The Doppler radar and double rainbows agree. San Diego's dreary stretch of weather appears to be coming to a promising end.

    A large storm that arrived Friday is expected to clear out Sunday for good to partly cloudy skies, and the dry times will likely last through the next several days.

    Some were unfazed by the elements. Others? Not so much, Katia Lopez-Hodoyan reports.


    The storm's movement provided a share of images, and local residents captured them Saturday with multiple double-rainbow sightings.

    San Diego's Perfect Storm

    Frustration set in around San Diego Friday with rain pounding down, but one weekend event promises to carry on without a hitch, Greg Bledsoe reports.

    Peter Neubauer took a photo of one (pictured above) at 5 p.m. that arched above the 52 freeway.  In Del Mar, Maureen Dime posted a video on YouTube of a double rainbow she said could see go "ground to ground" from her home garden.

    Dime was able to keep her excitement in check while shooting the footage, unlike some people.

    But Sunday morning proved Southern California wasn't totally out of the clear just yet.

    South County was hit with hail while local mountains were still on blizzard watch. Patches of rain dispersed around the county with varied intensity.

    The San Diego Gas and Electric Company also reported nine separate blackouts that left a total of 1,321 customers in the dark. At least three of those outages -- Escondido, Temecula and Jacumba -- listed weather as the primary cause.
