WHAT IS GOING ON?

A late-spring storm is not unusual

“This isn’t completely unusual, but we don’t get a lot of storms this late in the season,” Jimmy Taeger, a forecaster at the National Weather Service in Rancho Bernardo, told the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Motorists should watch for travel advisories in the mountains. An inch or two of snow could fall above the 5,000-foot level, and there could be trace amounts as low as 4,000 feet.

The cold and rain are expected to last into Monday, and the region won’t fully return to seasonal conditions until Wednesday.
