March 25, 2016 (San Diego’s East County) – Strong winds, rain and snow at higher elevations are forecast for early-to-mid week, along with cooler temperatures.

The stormy weather could make for a difficult post-holiday commute for Easter or Spring break travelers, according to National Weather Service forecasters Jimmy Taeger and  Joe Dandrea.

Wind gusts could reach 70 mph in mountains and deserts.  Showers will likely be mostly light, but with brief, moderate downpours and moderate snowfall above 5,000 feet.  Strong winds will cause reduced visibility, with blowing dust and sand in desert areas.
