January 7, 2016 (San Diego’s East County) – After four years of drought, when it rains, it pours! During the past 72 hours, the National Weather Service reports heavy snowfall in our local mountains including 12 to 15 inches on Mt. Laguna. In addition, many communities soaked up several inches of rain, topped by Mt. Woodson with nearly seven and a half inches.
Here are highlights on the snow and rainfall totals over the past three days.
