East County News Service
November 21, 2016 (San Diego’s East County) -- Sunday night’s storm brought heavy rains to much of drought-stricken San Diego County.
Descanso and Cuyamaca received more than an inch of rain and over an inch and a half fell on Palomar Mountain. Ramona and Julian received just under an inch, while Santee, Campo and Boulevard all got about a half inch of rain, though less than a quarter of an inch was received at San Diego’s Lindbergh Field.
With the storm past, sunny skies and highs of 65 are forecast for Thanksgiving weekend, making this an ideal time to visit our backcountry mountain areas to view some fall foliage, stop off at a local winery, pick up some apple pie in historic Julian, or enjoy fishing and hiking at one of our region’s many scenic lakes and trails.
