SAN DIEGO - Our first few days of winter will bring highs 5 up to 20 degrees above average and abundant sunshine across the county. A weak to moderate Santa Ana wind event will begin tonight with winds peaking overnight into tomorrow morning.
A Wind Advisory will go into effect at 10 p.m. for our valleys and mountains and last through 8 a.m. Wednesday. Expect northeast to easterly winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 50 mph and isolated gusts up to 60 mph in the typically windy places.
Humidity levels will drop to 10 to 15 percent Tuesday and Wednesday but thanks to recent rain the potential fire danger is limited, but all should still use caution. Humidity levels will recover on Christmas.
A Beach Hazard Statement continues until 10 a.m. Tuesday for surf of 3 to 5 feet and sets up to 6 feet. Highest surf will be along west-facing beaches south of Del Mar.

For Christmas, expect mid-60s west of the mountains, 50s in the mountains and temperatures hovering near 70 in the desert with a mix of sun and clouds.
