The second storm of the week is expected to bring scattered showers to San Diego this weekend, during what has already been an exceptionally wet month for the region.
The system is much weaker than its predecessor earlier in the week, according to NBC 7 Meteorologist Sheena Parveen. San Diego County started seeing light showers on Friday evening which will continue off-and-on through Sunday evening.
Surf would also be elevated from Saturday morning to Sunday night and could create dangerous rip currents and beach erosion, the NWS said. A high surf advisory warned that swells could reach up to 8 feet with the highest waves in southern San Diego County.
So far, three inches of rain or more have fallen on San Diego County during what is known as the "water season" that began on Oct. 1. Campo received nearly 6.5 inches of rain, Brown Field received just over 6 inches, Carlsbad received 4.72 inches, Oceanside received 4.33 inches and San Diego received 3.91 inches of rain.
The NWS noted that most of the precipitation fell during a series of storms in late November and early December.
