April 22, 2010 (San Diego’s East County) – A surprise late-season storm didn’t stop firefighters county-wide from participating in a “Fill the Boot” campaign to collect donations for the Burn Institute—but did make for some chilly conditions.

“Firefighters at the Cal Fire Julian Station braved the freezing temperature for hours,” said Cal Fire Battalion Chief Nick Schuler.

Cold, wet weather is expected to continue through Thursday, the National Weather Service forecasts. Travelers are advised to use caution. Thunderstorms and hail are possible, with snow flurries as low as 3,500 feet and four to six inches of snowfall above 4,000 feet in East County mountains. Gusty 20-30 mile per hour winds are forecast for mountain and desert areas, with occasional gusts up to 50 mph.
