The National Weather Service scheduled a high wind warning for the mountains and deserts until 9 p.m., saying isolated gusts up to 80 miles per hour are possible. A less severe wind advisory is scheduled from noon to 6 p.m. in coastal and valley areas.
At the beaches, a high surf advisory was in effect through late Tuesday morning. The weather service says 5- to 9-foot surf is expected, especially along west-facing beaches, due to a large short-period northwest swell. Strong rip currents are also likely, according to the weather service.
For mariners off the coast, a gale warning is in effect from early Monday morning to late night.
