Winds calm for San Diego

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — The gusty winds buffeting parts of San Diego County are expected to give way to calmer conditions Tuesday, but two storm systems moving in to the area will bring rain later this week.

A National Weather Service wind advisory for the valleys and mountains is set to expire at 10 a.m. Tuesday. Winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour and gusts of up to 45 mph will be possible throughout the remainder of the advisory period.

"Surface high pressure over the Great Basin will bring periods of gusty northeast winds near and below the coastal slopes of the mountains and below
mountain passes and canyons into this morning," according to the weather service. "Winds are expected to decrease during the afternoon."

Forecasters warned that the strong winds may making driving difficult, especially for motorists in high-profile vehicles.

The winds are expected to weaken throughout the day and usher in fair and warmer weather, according to the NWS.

A storm system moving in to the area may bring showers Wednesday and Thursday, followed by a second storm system bringing showers over the weekend.
