Thunderstorms surged past the mountains and dropped scattered rainfall in southwestern Riverside County and northern San Diego counties Thursday afternoon.

Lightning could be seen off and on for a few hours into the evening, as late as 8pm, as thunderclouds raced to the coast.

WeatherCurrents rain gauges in Wildomar (0.18"), Murrieta (0.14"), Temecula (0.07"), French Valley (0.09") and De Luz (0.05") all recorded rainfall as a cell pelted southwest Riverside County.

Reginald Stanley reported 0.58" in Eastern Murrieta, along with street flooding, between 3:30pm and 4:30pm.
