SAN DIEGO - Strong winds were expected to pick up Sunday, with San Diego County mountains and deserts warned to brace for potentially damaging gusts overnight and into Monday.
Light showers throughout the county and overnight snow in the mountains was also expected, according to the National Weather Service.
Trace amounts of rain were recorded in the South County in the morning, and light rains were expected throughout the county for the rest of the day. Rainfall would reach measurable levels starting at around 3 p.m. and into the evening, according to the NWS.
San Diego County experienced much windier conditions than usual, especially along the coast, where gusts were forecast to reach up to 40 mph Sunday night.
A NWS wind advisory will be in effect along the coast from 6 p.m. to 10 a.m. Monday.
Much colder air will move into the county Monday, with a high chance the northerly gusts will turn into advisory strength winds through the Cajon Pass and Santa Ana Mountains.
The cooler weather is expected to taper off Tuesday, with warmer, dry conditions through the end of the week, according to forecasters.
