The wind warning largely impacts the eastern reaches of San Diego between Alpine and the county line with Imperial.
NWS forecaster James Thomas said a wind warning is issued when wind speeds are anticipated in the 25 to 35 mph range with possible gusts up to 60 mph.
“We're expecting the winds to be the strongest, and most widespread, this evening,'' Thomas said.
Thomas said winds are expected to die out on Sunday, with changing weather conditions associated with an approaching small storm expected Monday.
“We're looking at mid-morning through the evening for the storm on Monday,'' the forecaster said. “We'll have about a 30 percent chance to see rain showers over, and west of, the mountains, with snow levels around 4,000 or 5,000 feet.''
The NWS forecaster said very little snow, not much more than a ''dusting,'' is expected in most of the higher elevations in the county on Monday.
“We could see an inch or two of snow on the highest peaks in Mount Laguna, Palomar or the Cuyamacas,'' Thomas said.
