SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Nearly 1,500 people throughout San Diego County are without power as winter storms sweep through the area.

According to the San Diego Gas and Electric outage map, 1,494 people are without power due to an unplanned outage.

Cooler weather, rain and thunderstorms are expected to continue through Thursday before tapering off.

“Tropical moisture is building around the county from a storm surging from Baja. A cold system will bring colder air and heavier rainfall and possible flash flooding,” said 10News Meteorologist Angelica Campos.

Rainfall accumulations are expected to average between .50 and 1.50 inches for the coast and valleys, 2 to 3 inches for the mountains and .10 to .25 inches for the deserts.
