    Valley Center and Pauma Valley saw the heaviest rain early Monday.

    "The closer you are to the foothills, the more likely today you're going to see rain of substantial amounts," said NBC 7 Meteorologist Jodi Kodesh. "We could see anywhere from an inch to two inches in our mountains."

    Residents living west of the mountains should still see a cold, windy and possibly wet day. Some coastal areas could see between .25" to .75" of rain, Kodesh said.

    Steady rain fell for more than an hour in Santee where some riders at the trolley station were surprised by the rain.

    “During the day, when it’s raining, San Diegans forget how to drive sometimes,” Ashley Dryden said. “So everybody stay safe.”
