Wind advisory issued for San Diego mountains

SAN DIEGO - A wind advisory was scheduled to go in effect in San Diego County's valleys and mountains early Monday because of gusty northeast-to-east winds.

The National Weather Service issued the advisory from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., saying sustained winds of 20 to 30 miles per hour and widespread gusts up to 50 mph were likely Monday. Also, isolated gusts of up to 60 mph were possible in wind-favored locations, the agency said.

Winds were expected to be strongest near coastal foothills.

"The winds will make driving difficult, especially for motorists with high profile vehicles," the NWS said. "Watch for broken tree limbs and other debris."
