Regional Emergency Managers Discuss Winter Outlook

There was a time when meteorologists could predict whether winter would be mild, moderate or severe.  That information helped emergency managers plan ahead and get resources ready to fit the forecast and try to avoid a disaster.

Now, it’s difficult to predict the weather for more than 10 days at a time, said Stephen Rea, assistant director for the San Diego County Office of Emergency Services at a regional Winter Weather Workshop for local jurisdictions Tuesday in Kearny Mesa.
