SAN DIEGO -- Gusty wind and rain were expected to continue Friday and into the weekend in parts of San Diego County.

Weather disturbances passing through Southern California will bring cool, unsettled and windy weather through Saturday, along with afternoon and evening showers and a few thunderstorms, according to the National Weather Service.

Gusty west winds of  25 to 35 miles per hour with gusts of up to 50 mph are expected in the mountains and deserts. A National Weather Service high wind advisory for mountains and deserts is scheduled to remain in effect until 2 a.m. Saturday. The advisory did not extend to the rest of San Diego County.

The wind could cause hazardous driving conditions, especially along Interstates 8 and 15, the NWS said. Visibility along some roadways could be reduced by blowing sand and dust.

Forecasters said the cool, windy weather would be followed by warming and dry offshore flow early next week.
