According to this map from the National Weather Service, areas colored in light brown are under a wind advisory.

The agency issued a wind advisory for the mountains and deserts until 3 a.m. Wednesday.

During the advisory period, sustained winds of 20 to 30 miles per hour were likely to gust up to 50 mph. Isolated gusts up to 60 mph were also possible, according to the weather service.

"The winds will make driving difficult, especially for motorists with high profile vehicles,'' an NWS advisory said.

Also, visibility in the deserts will be reduced due to blowing sand and dust, according to the agency.
