The cold, wet weekend continued with light rains in some parts of San Diego County Monday.
For some San Diegans this year's wet winter has been a welcome change, in a region that's endured five years of severe drought.
Gentle and moderate rains over the past several months have pulled northern parts of California out of the drought. Currently, 15 percent of the state is no longer considered to be in a drought, according to the National Weather Service (NWS) and the U.S. Drought Report.
In Scripps Ranch and Poway, light sprinkles continued after a holiday weekend filled with wet and stormy weather.
The rain in 2016 has helped recharge Lake Miramar and the San Vincente Reservoir. Those water sources feed into two massive systems that move water from Northern Sierra to our cities and Imperial Valley Farmlands.
However, after five years of drought, California needs more than a few winter storms to be pulled completely out.
At the San Vincente Reservoir, a fisherman told NBC 7 he caught nearly 20 fish because of the recent rains and colder weather.
Although a wind advisory was issued for Alpine, the breezes were relatively calm over there on Monday.
This past weekend, San Diego County had about an inch of rain in the coastal and inland valleys and several inches of snow in the mountains.
