Your Wednesday Weather Forecast

Rain pounded the county late Tuesday but it's a different story today



    Look for clouds and sunshine as the county dries out Wednesday.

    That storm system that brought San Diego a nice dose of rain pushed down to the south overnight.

    Clouds are drying out and the county will see some clouds and perhaps a small amount of rain it will be “totally light stuff,” said meteorologist Jodi Kodesh. “Doesn’t even qualify as a shower.”

    Even though the rain has stopped, a high surf advisory remains in effect until 2 p.m. PT Friday according to the National Weather Service. Our coastline can expect waves up to 5 - 8 feet with local sets to 10 feet. Surfers should head to the northern Orange County or southern San Diego county for the best waves.

    Here's a look at rain totals for the last 24 hours according to the NWS:
    Montgomery Field .21
    Brown Field .29
    Julian .09
    Fallbrook .02
    Bonita .15
    Campo .20

    San Diego drivers battled the heaviest rainfall Tuesday during the afternoon rush hour. Along Interstate 805, near State Route 54, a semi truck lost control for just but a split second but on the wet roads, that's all it took to create a bottleneck for commuters.

    The truck struck the cement center divide so hard, CHP officers said the semi popped up on top of it and grinded across it like a skateboarder until the truck finally struck a column on the SR54 overpass.

    It took more than two hours to hoist the semi off the center divide and tow it away.
