SAN DIEGO — Some San Diego County school districts closed for a second day Tuesday after a series of winter storms moved through the area causing dangerous driving conditions in many mountain communities.

All schools in the Julian Union High School District, Julian Union School District, Mountain Empire Unified School District, Spencer Valley School District and Warner Springs Unified School District will be closed Tuesday due to inclement weather.
