Heavy rain moved across most of San Diego County overnight, leaving the region with scattered and spotty showers Monday morning.

While the system moves inland toward the foothills and mountains, some areas will be hit by occasional light-to-moderate rain as the morning progresses. If you’re walking your dog Monday morning, you’re going to want to take a raincoat and boots just in case, NBC 7 meteorologist Sheena Parveen warns.

The chance for these showers will decrease at about lunchtime so San Diegans will have a dry afternoon. Temperatures will struggle to break through the mid-60s so you may want to have a light sweater on hand.

San Diego County Department of Environmental Health issued a water contact closure Monday for all beaches from the International Border through North Beach, Coronado.

The Department of Environmental Health issued the beach advisory because bacteria levels can rise along coastal waters from weekend rainfall.

Runoff from storm drains may contain large amounts of bacteria such as animal waste, soil, and decomposing vegetation that can be harmful to human health, the county said.

Signs will be in place at these locations until the county has confirmed the water is safe again.

The next chance for rain is Wednesday overnight through Thursday. That disturbance will trigger colder temps in the mountains on Thursday and may even deliver snow.

Friday and the weekend overall look gorgeous since the forecast appears to be dry and sunny.
