SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Light rain dropped in parts of San Diego’s North County overnight, with spotty showers expected to fall during the Thursday morning drive before tapering off.

A Pacific storm rolled into the region Wednesday afternoon, but much of the precipitation was isolated to North County cities. As of Thursday morning, Escondido has received .42 inches of rain. Encinitas has seen .6 inches of rain, while neighboring Carlsbad has received .5 inches.

Some light drizzle was reported in the San Diego metro area, but the amount was not considered significant.


The showers did leave many roads in the North County wet overnight, causing some slowdown during the Thursday morning commute.

10News Meteorologist Megan Parry says some spotty showers will linger through 11 a.m., before the area dries out and the storm moves east.

Temperatures are expected to be 5-15 degrees below normal throughout the day through the end of the week.

Megan’s forecast calls for possible drizzle to light showers Saturday night into Sunday morning.
