As the remnants of Hurricane Rosa started to drop rain in the San Diego region Sunday night, another system is heading toward Southern California.
Rain from the now downgraded tropical cyclone Rosa started falling in parts of Chula Vista and La Mesa on Sunday evening but more rain was expected overnight into Monday and again on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.
The storm was mostly affecting mostly the mountains and deserts. Rainfall is expected to be less than a tenth of an inch, the agency said.
On Monday, the chance of showers would diminish by noon, clearing to partly cloudy skies with hot and humid conditions. The same pattern was expected to repeat Tuesday.
On Wednesday, a Pacific storm will move into the Southern California region, bringing with it a chance of showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms from the coast to the mountains, the NWS said.
Coastal San Diego is on the western periphery of the storm and will experience scatter to numerous showers, according to the NWS.
The bulk of the storm will move into Arizona on Monday.
The storm is expected dump less than a quarter of an inch of rain in the San Diego region, according to the NWS.
The system is expected to weaken and move inland by Thursday, the agency said.
The National Weather Service issued a beach hazards statement Sunday because of the elevated surfs from Rosa. The highest surf is expected late Sunday through Monday evening, the NWS said.
“Strong longshore currents and rip currents will occur,” the agency said.
The beach hazards statement expires at 6 a.m. on Tuesday.
