It has been raining in San Diego County this holiday season, however we did not have any snow fall until Christmas Day Eve on December 25th, 2019. The town of Julian, Ca got its share of son and as of writing this post, the roads are closed to Julian. The weather forecast looks like it will warm up later this week. The local authorities are pretty good about clearing the roads as well, so if you go to the mountains, check first if the roads are open and if they are requiring chains for your tires.

Julian is an historic gold mining town located approximately an hour east of San Diego. It is the premier mountain retreat in the county and is unique in that it has four seasons. Spring brings the blossoming of many flowers including daffodils, summer is perfect for hiking and star gazing, fall is famous for our apples and fall colors, and winter brings snowfalls and bright, crisp, “Christmassy” days. Although famous for apples and our superb apple pie one can enjoy all year round, Julian has become the center for visitors who wish to stay in the mountains but take day trips to the nearby casinos, the Anza Borrego Desert State Park and the coast. It has always been the B&B capital of Southern California, known for its romantic atmosphere, but is now fast becoming a great destination for families, hikers, weddings and corporate retreats. Specialty shops line our streets, our attractions are unique, ranging from wineries to wolves. From the old time melodrama to the Grape Stomp Festa, Julian events are great for couples, families and groups.Climate & Weather At 4,235 feet, Julian’s high elevation provides clean air, blue skies and four distinct seasons. Spring is generally mild and wild flowers decorate the back country in and around Julian while a profusion of daffodils is evident throughout the town site.Average summer temperatures fall in the 80s with occasional summer rains in July and August. The fi rst cold spell of fall prompts a blanket of color as the trees prepare for a winter of gentle snowfalls. Sledding and snowball fun in the surrounding mountains add to the season’s activities
