SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8/CNS) – Cool and cloudy conditions start off Friday morning, but the sun will break through in the afternoon. Strong winds in San Diego County's deserts are also expected to ease up Friday morning.
A National Weather Service wind advisory for the deserts is set to expire at 8 a.m. Friday. Sustained wind speeds of 25 to 35 miles per hour and gusts to 55 mph in most affected areas and 65 mph in certain locales will be possible Friday morning.
Strong winds may lead to hazardous driving conditions, especially for motorists in high-profile vehicles. Blowing dust and sand may reduce visibility to 2 to 5 miles, so drivers are urged to use extra caution, according to the NWS.
Forecasters said the winds would slowly diminish through mid-morning.
