Strong wind advisory in effect until 7AM Sunday

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The strong winds that have been blowing in parts of San Diego County's mountains and deserts are expected to continue Saturday and overnight, forecasters said.

A National Weather Service wind advisory is scheduled to remain in effect until 7 a.m. Sunday, as the strong west to northwest winds trail a low pressure trough moving across the Great Basin. Winds of 35 mph or gusts of 45-50 mph are expected, according to the NWS.

The wind could kick up dust and sand in the deserts this afternoon through tonight, which could make driving difficult, especially for drivers in high profile vehicles, weather service meteorologists said.

The winds are expected to weaken tonight, according to the NWS.
