Wind advisory in effect for mountain and desert areas

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – A trough of low pressure over the west will maintain
strong onshore flow through Wednesday, bringing gusty winds to the mountains
and deserts of San Diego County Tuesday, the National Weather Service said.

The agency issued a wind advisory for the mountains and deserts until 3
a.m. Wednesday.

During the advisory period, sustained winds of 20 to 30 miles per hour
were likely to gust up to 50 mph. Isolated gusts up to 60 mph were also
possible, according to the weather service.

“The winds will make driving difficult, especially for motorists with
high profile vehicles,” an NWS advisory said.

Also, visibility in the deserts will be reduced due to blowing sand and
dust, according to the agency.
