    Heavy rain, thunder and lightning have delayed some flights coming and in out of San Diego International Airport. 

    At least ten to fifteen flights departing San Diego from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. have been delayed, according to the airport's website. NBC 7 has reached out to an airport spokesman to get complete numbers on current airport delays. 

    One flight from Phoenix sat on the tarmac for more than an hour because crews were not allowed outside on the tarmac while lightning was in the area. 

    At Lindbergh Field, the rainfall total as of 1:45 p.m. was .46 inches.
