San Diego can expect to see some lingering scattered showers Tuesday morning before skies clear up to a warm-up due to a Santa Ana wind pattern later this week.
Rain showers began Monday evening and continued overnight, leaving roadways wet for Tuesday's morning commute.
NBC 7 Meteorologist Sheena Parveen said light to moderate rain could last through the afternoon, with some scattered showers continuing past that in the mountains and foothills.
Then, a warm-up begins.
"We could have a weak Santa Ana forming even into the weekend," Parveen said. "But the forecast looks pretty dry, pretty sunny and pretty comfortable all the way until the weekend."
NBC 7 Meteorologist Dagmar Midcap said winter rain and snow have helped all of California out of "Exceptional Drought," the worst stage of the state's drought monitor, and only a few patches of the state near Oregon remain in the penultimate "Extreme Drought" stage.
