Sunday Storm Soaks San Diego

Rainfall soaked San Diego Sunday as the winter storm brought light showers that turned into a steady rain mid-day. 

The rain was expected to taper off and the evening was forecast to be mostly cloudy with only a 30 percent chance of showers before 10 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.

As of 10 a.m., a tenth of an inch of precipitation was measured at some spots along the coast with almost two-tenths of an inch received in Ramona and Valley Center.

The storm didn't bring much snow, which fell above 7,000 feet, and traffic continued to move through major passes such as the Grapevine section of Interstate 5 north of Los Angeles.

No mudslides or flooding were reported, however, in areas burned by wildfires.

The rain prompted the California Department of Transportation to postpone graffiti cleanup and other planned maintenance on Southern California freeways.
