SAN DIEGO - A low-pressure atmospheric system pulled rain clouds over the San Diego area from sub-tropic locales to the south Monday, bringing on-and-off showers to the region from morning into the evening hours.
The blustery spring storm was expected to continue dousing the county and generating strong desert and mountain winds into Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.
