The second in a series of winter storms made for another soggy day in the San Diego area Tuesday.
The unsettled atmospheric system, which followed close behind one that arrived in the county Sunday evening, delivered steady showers and occasional heavy downpours across the region through the morning, according to the National Weather Service.
Forecasts for periodic heavy rain prompted the NWS to issue a flash- flood watch for the region, effective through late Wednesday night
No serious flooding damage had been reported by late morning.
Over a 24-hour period ending at 10 a.m., the wet clouds had dropped 0.61 of an inch of moisture on San Clemente Island; 0.38 on Palomar Mountain; 0.28 in Flinn Springs and the Granite Hills area; 0.25 in Chula Vista; 0.24 in Harbison Canyon and the University Heights neighborhood of San Diego; 0.23 in Lemon Grove and Santee; 0.22 in Mission Valley; 0.2 in Point Loma; 0.19 in La Mesa; 0.18 in Carlsbad and at Lindbergh Field; 0.17 in Linda Vista; 0.16 in Encinitas, Kearny Mesa and Oceanside; 0.9 in Mission Beach and Vista; and 0.04 in Del Mar.
The series of consecutive storms, which is expected to continue into the weekend, may bring some local snowfall as well in the East County highlands, though probably not today, NWS meteorologist Jimmy Taeger said.
All told, the spate of inclement weather likely will leave behind two to four inches of rain west of the mountains, three to six inches on coastal slopes, 0.5 to 1.5 inches in the deserts, according to forecasters.
