Travel Warning Issued as San Diego County Suffers Extreme Weather


The National Weather Service has issued a stern warning as heavy rain continues to pour throughout parts of San Diego County, causing hazardous travel conditions. Residents are strongly encouraged to avoid unnecessary travel, particularly in downtown San Diego, where the effects of the heavy rain are most severe.

The National Weather Service’s latest update at 9 a.m. shows widespread moderate rainfall, with pockets of severe rainfall continuing over Southern California. Furthermore, the existence of a few recorded thunderstorms, as identified by satellite and lightning data, indicates a higher chance of thunderstorms throughout the day.

Big Bear Lake cameras show moderate to severe snowfall with restricted visibility, making higher altitudes difficult to navigate. Observations at comparable levels show temperatures around or slightly below freezing, with difficulty climbing above freezing owing to the continued heavy snowfall.

In response to the winter weather, a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for elevations over 6,500 feet in the San Bernardino/Riverside County Mountains until 10 p.m. tonight. This alert is intended to address the possible issues caused by cold temperatures and heavy precipitation in higher elevations.

The National Weather Service highlights the importance of vigilance and preparation during these severe weather conditions. Residents are highly advised not to travel unless essential, particularly in the neighborhood of downtown San Diego, where the heavy downpour is most intense.
