SAN DIEGO - A wind advisory is in effect for San Diego County mountains Sunday night through Monday night, as the area braces for rain and snow at higher elevations, according to the National Weather Service.

The most rain was expected to arrive overnight with the possibility of thunderstorms, but the rain could begin earlier in the evening, the NWS said.

Southwest winds were forecast to reach 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 60 mph in some of the mountain passes.

In addition to the light dusting of snow at elevations above 6,000 feet, a high surf advisory has been issued for San Diego beaches, with waves of up to 8 feet expected in some areas.

The system should be gone by Monday night with a return to warm days by Thanksgiving, the NWS said.
