SNOW, ICE SHUTS DOWN I-8 AT ALPINE; SNOW BLANKETS MOUNTAIN AREAS

February 22, 2019 (San Diego's East County) -- East County's mountain areas look like winter wonderlands, with two feet of snow atop Mt. Laguna and several inches or more in Julian (photo, left, webcam in downtown Julian). 

But winter conditions have wreaked havoc with motorists. After many vehicles incuding a semi-truck and a school bu skidded on icy conditions along Interstate 8, authorities shut down I-8 from Alpine to the County line last night. It remains closed this morning, though the CHP has been escorting stranded motorist through the area. 

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY ISSUED

January 3, 2010 (San Diego)—Scattered showers are forecast today across San Diego County, with snow forecast in mountain areas.

“We’re all hoping for snow,” said Teresa Manley at Julian Meadow View Inn in Julian. Snow is good for the tourism business in Julian, but despite forecasts of snow last night, the mountain town which has an elevation of 4,235 feet got only drizzle, Manley said.
