Wind advisory issued for San Diego County mountains, deserts

Gusts of up to 55 mph expected

SAN DIEGO - The 10News Pinpoint Weather Team says gusty west winds are expected to bluster through the mountains and deserts of San Diego County starting Sunday.


The National Weather Service scheduled a wind advisory for the mountains and deserts to take effect at 3 p.m. and extend until 3 a.m. Monday.

10News Meteorologist Craig Herrera said west winds of 15 to 20 mph are expected with gusts of up to 55 mph near mountain ridge tops, along desert mountain slopes and extending into adjacent desert areas.

Blowing sand and dust in the deserts could cause reduced visibility, and the winds could make driving difficult especially for motorists in high-profile vehicle, according to the weather service. Drivers were advised to use extra caution.

10News Weathercaster Ashlee DeMartino said a deep marine layer will also cause patchy fog in some areas through Wednesday morning.
