November 9, 2020 (San Diego’s East County) – Snow fell overnight on mountaintops in San Diego's inland region including Mount Laguna in East County, with more snow showers possible at higher elevations tonight. On Mount Palomar, a new record low temperature of 25 degrees was recorded early this morning.
In the high desert areas such as Campo, below freezing temperatures as low as 29 degrees are forecast tonight.
Frost and freeze conditions could kill crops and sensitive vegetation, also potentially damaging unprotected plumbing, the National Weather Service warns.
Later in the week, the temperature is forecast to warm up, but light rains are possible Friday and Saturday morning, with breezy winds in the mountains and deserts making driving conditions hazardous in places.
