May 16, 2015 (San Diego’s East County) - The storm that doused our region in recent days brought some welcome drought relief. According to the National Weather Service, so far in May, 2.35 inches have fallen in San Diego—making this the second wettest May in our region’s history and the wettest since 1921—and we still have half a month to go!

The storm caused some flooding in Mission Valley and hassles for motorists, but overall the drenching came as welcome relief amid a four year drought. 

A full two inches fell at Lake Cuyamaca, but the storm cleared just in time for weekend activities including Ramona’s parade and Rodeo.

As for the rest of the week, partially cloudy skies are forecast, with a 10% chance of rain through Wednesday.
