Environment Report: The Wet Weather Is In San Diego’s DNA

San Diego has been gloomy — cold, cloudy and rainy — pretty much since Christmas Day. Communities in North County — Vista and Ramona — just had their coldest February on record, according to the National Weather Service. So far, it’s rained three inches more than normal for this time of year in San Diego. “People who are doing construction are sending me text messages saying, ‘When is it going to stop?’” said Alex Tardy, a weather service meteorologist.
