Rain to Move Through San Diego County Thursday Evening

It's been a wet week for San Diegans, but it's not over yet...

A flood advisory has been issued for parts of San Diego County as a heavy rain moves into the County Thursday afternoon. 

The National Weather Service (NWS) issued the advisory for Northwestern San Diego County - including Oceanside, Carlsbad, Vista, San Marcos, Camp Pendleton, Fallbrook and surrounding areas - for the expected rainfall. 

Parts of San Diego could see 0.25 to 0.50 inches of rainfall an hour during the storm's most intense bands. Due to the heavy rainfall, parts of the County should expect to see local flooding. 

One San Diegan told NBC 7’s Katia Lopez-Hodoyan that the rain is like “liquid sunshine.”

Afternoon commuters will likely see some rain as they head home when a storm begins to sweep through the County. 

Heavier rain will make its way onto shore starting at 5 p.m. Thursday. Coastal cities will see the most intense rain from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., NBC 7 Meteorologist Whitney Southwick forecasted. 

East County communities will see heavy rain Thursday evening around 8 p.m., Southwick forecasted. 

The cells will drop a lot of rain in a short period of time, Southwick forecasted. The NWS estimated Oceanside, Escondido, Fallbrook and Temecula would see at least an inch of rain. 

The rain will continue on overnight into mid-morning Friday.

The NWS warns anyone who may see flooded roads to turn around and find another route.
