SAN DIEGO, CA - Flash flooding led to road closures, water rescues, power outages, and school closures across San Diego County. Officials responded to water rescue calls after 1-4" of rainfall fell in southern California. Residents in the San Diego area had to wade through chest-deep water on Monday afternoon after 3" of rainfall fell in the area.

The flood waters reached so high in some places, that cars were washed away from a parking lot along a stream.

Monday, January 22nd was a record-setting day for the San Diego Airport! The airport saw 2.70" of rain, tying for the 5th wettest day ever. This was also the wettest January day ever for the San Diego Airport. Typically the city sees about 10" of rain in a year, meaning a quarter of the annual rainfall fell on Monday alone! Most of California is waking up to drier weather this morning; which is what we need to see after yesterday.

Any leftover snow in the Sierras taper off in the early morning of Tuesday. Snow totals coming out of the higher elevations are very impressive! Soda Springs was able to see over 3' of snow from this round of moisture.
