San Diegans were greeted with early morning rain Monday after days of hot and humid weather in the county.
We’re started off the work week with early morning showers that triggered a flood advisory Monday morning for North County, mountain and desert communities in the region. The National Weather Service warned that heavy rain and thunderstorm chances would make urban and small stream flooding possible in impacted areas.
By 8 a.m., that advisory had expired an no dangerous amounts of flooding were reported.
Widespread rain touched upon each San Diego County city as it moves its way from east to west.

“This is all part of that monsoonal moisture moving through,” NBC 7 meteorologist Sheena Parveen said.
She warned that due to the wet weather, residents should take precautions to keep dry.
“For any kids going back to school this morning, maybe send them off with a raincoat or umbrella,” Parveen said. “They’ll really just need it for the next couple of hours and then we’re going to start to dry up quite a bit for the coast and the inland valley. Not for the mountains and deserts, though.”
Showers lingered around North County’s coast up until mid-to-late morning while storms are forecasted to flare up again in mountain and desert areas during the afternoon.
Things will clear up for the county as the day progresses and Tuesday is looking dry, along with the rest of our week.
