December 29, 2012 (San Diego’s East County ) - A storm moving through our region today and tomorrow is expected to bring rain and in mountain areas, snow. By tomorrow, snow is forecast to drop down to 4,000 feet—low enough to include Julian and Lake Cuyamaca—popular destinations for families seeking to frolic in the snow.
Gusty winds are also forecast in mountains and on desert slopes late Sunday. The storm system is expected to move east and out of our county on Monday, so if you’re planning a trip to the mountains it’s best to wait until after the weekend.
If you must drive in the mountains during the storm, carry extra food and water, blankets, and tire chains. Main highways are typically ploughed once the storm passes, making popular destinations accessible.
