San Diego's Rainfall Deficit

According to the weather forecast of NBC 7 meteorologist Sheena Parveen, it is said that San Diego County is able to see between a half-inch to 1 inch of rain from the system on Wednesday morning.

Normally, the normal rainfall for February in this county is 2.27 inches but this year, it only saw 0.10 inches last month.

She said Wednesday’s rain is certainly welcome.
