Low pressure moving out of Mexico brings rain to San Diego, California. No mention of CO2

8/2/14, "Flash Flood Watch as Rain Drizzles Across Parched County,", Andie Adams

"Some much needed rain is drizzling across arid San Diego County, just one day after the region was put under Stage 2 drought alert.

The county’s mountains and deserts are under a flash flood watch until Sunday evening. A beach hazard was also released to warn people to stay out of the water in case of lightning. That warning is in effect until 8 p.m. Saturday.

NBC 7’s Lauren Lee said that could mean periods of heavy rainfall, lightning and possibly hail.

“The combination of monsoonal moisture and an area of low pressure moving out of Mexico will bring showers and isolated thunders to our area this weekend,” said Lee.

Sprinkles have been reported in La Jolla, Eastlake, Normal Heights, Miramar, Vista and other sites throughout the county....

One man in La Jolla told NBC 7 he usually uses his beach umbrella for shade, but Saturday, he used it for shelter. 

Despite the showers, more than half of California is now suffering from exceptional drought conditions, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.

While the situation is not as bad in San Diego, the drought is still considered extreme in the region."
