Seeds of GrowthSAN DIEGO — A low-pressure system that was over Arizona early this morning will move quickly eastward today, spurring gusty west winds in the mountains and deserts of San Diego County into this evening, meteorologists said.

The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory for the mountains and deserts until 9 p.m., saying sustained winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour and gusts up to 45 mph were likely today.

The strongest winds will be early this morning, then again late this afternoon into early evening, according to the weather service.

“Strong winds will make driving difficult, especially for motorists with high profile vehicles,” an NWS advisory said. “Watch for broken tree limbs and other debris on roadways.”

Also today, light showers were expected to continue mainly along and west of the mountains early this morning but showers could linger near the mountains into this afternoon, according to the NWS.

The agency forecast drier and slightly warmer weather this weekend.
