WEATHER UPDATE: August 20, 2014 (8:30 a.m.)

There is a chance of thunderstorms across San Diego County Wednesday and a flood advisory is in place for the northwest corner of the county, including Oceanside, Fallbrook, Camp Pendleton and San Clemente. In addition to thunderstorms, hail fell in Oceanside and Fallbrook early Wednesday morning.

The National Weather Service in San Diego has issued an urban and small stream flood advisory for minor flooding of urban areas in northwestern San Diego County until 9:15 a.m.

A line of thunderstorms moving over south and central San Diego County around 7:30 a.m. upped the risk for cloud-to-ground and cloud-to-water lightning at the beaches, according to the National Weather Service.


Locations: mainly northern San Diego County beaches from Encinitas to San Onofre through 11 a.m. However, thunderstorms may also form over southern San Diego county beaches at times.

Impacts: lightning may cause serious injury or death to those people who are caught on the open coast during a thunderstorm.

At 6:19 a.m. PDT: moderate to heavy showers and a few embedded thunderstorms were continuing to move northeast off the ocean and moving onshore between Oceanside and San Clemente, extending through the southern Inland Empire to the mountain slopes. Minor flooding is also possible due to the continual rain over the recent burn scars in Camp Pendleton.
