A blustery autumn storm doused the San Diego area with steady rains Thursday for a second straight day, dropping an inch or more of additional moisture in some areas and occasionally illuminating the skies with flashes of lightning.

A flash-flood warning was scheduled to be in effect for the southwestern section of the county until 8:30 p.m. the weather service advised.

The storm — the second to sweep through Southern California in a week — should dissipate and move out of the region by daybreak Friday, meteorologists reported.

The weekend is expected to usher in a warming trend, but another low-pressure system out of the northwest is due to deliver cooler temperatures and more chances of rain on Tuesday, according to forecasters.
