SAN DIEGO – Strong gusty winds are expected to develop in San Diego County’s mountains and deserts Monday morning, which could cause problems for drivers, the National Weather Service reported.
Forecasters expected western winds to build between 20 and 30 mph with gusts of up to 50 mph. The strongest winds are expected Monday morning near mountain ridge tops, along desert slopes and in adjacent areas. A wind advisory was set to go into effect at midnight and extend to 4 p.m. Monday.
Blowing sand and dust in the deserts could reduce visibility and make driving difficult, especially for motorists in high profile vehicles, according to the Weather Service.
Meterologists advised drivers to watch out for broken tree limbs and downed power lines.
