Snow stopped falling in the Cajon Pass at little before 3 p.m., but California Highway Patrol officials said heavy fog is still an issue and they will continue to remain vigilant along affected roadways.


"We are laying cinders down on the roadway and as long as the weather remains good we will no longer require escorts," CHP Officer William Osegueda said. "But we still have four or five units along the pass along with Caltrans workers just in case.


According to Osegueda, the fog has been a hazard throughout the day in the Cajon Pass, but said there have been more collision in the Wrightwood area where snow was falling as of 3 p.m.


A jack-knifed big rig on Highway 138 near Highway 2 blocked all lanes of traffic at about 2:15 p.m., according to CHP reports. Several other vehicles have become stuck in the snow.


"We want to make sure we don't have a repeat of last year where motorists became stranded in the pass for several hours," Osegueda said. "That's why we will be running the escorts and using the snow plow early and as often as it's needed. We hope not to have to close the pass."


Victorville officials are dealing with a large sink hole on La Mesa Road near Luna Road. Authorities feel the hole is weather-related.


A portion of the roadway was shut down until it could be made safe for motorists.


Snow began to fall and stick along the Cajon Pass Tuesday, with a dusting of snow in some parts of Hesperia.


CHP and Caltrans officials began running escorts to prevent motorists from becoming stranded as they did last year, authorities said.


Motorists have reported snow and heavy fog in the Hesperia and Oak Hills area.


Heavy snow began to fall on portions of Hesperia for a short time, Monday.


"It's real nice you can really see it and it's big flakes," Marilyn Clair who lives near E avenue off Main Street said. "My friend lives on I Avenue toward the tracks and she said it was still raining over there."


CHP officials remind motorists to slow down, keep chains in their vehicles and stay off the roads if travel is not necessary.


Rain and the threat of more to come prompted county officials to close Mojave Narrows Regional Park in Victorville on Tuesday.


Rain saturated the park grounds and high waters caused some flooding around the Horseshoe Lake at the park, officials said. Authorities were planning to build a dirt berm to divert the water. Forecasts call for more rain, the most intense chances coming Wednesday night into Thursday.
