Snow, rain and high winds arrived across San Diego County Friday.

An intense wall of rain crossed Interstate 5 and headed over to Interstate 15 and then on to the local mountains where it has dumped a large amount of snow.

The region will experience thinner bands of rain throughout the day.

“We will see other pockets where it will be very heavy at other times so this is not over just yet,” said NBC 7 meteorologist Jodi Kodesh.

Track the Storm with Interactive Radar

Mountain neighborhoods above 3,000 ft. are seeing snow with San Diego County Department of Public Works plowing Sunrise Highway before most San Diegans woke up Friday.

Chains are required for travel in Julian, Cuyamaca, Laguna and on Highway 78 at Williams.

Julian Union and Mt. Empire School Districts have canceled classes for a snow day.

California Highway Patrol closed traffic along northbound Interstate 5 at Castaic due to snow and low visibility.

"Mountain travel not advised today," said NBC 7's Whitney Southwick. "Wait until tomorrow."

Check Interactive Traffic Map

Saturday precipitation should begin slow down, but high winds up to 40 mph could last throughout the weekend.
