Gusty west winds of 25 to 35 miles per hour with gusts of up to 65 mph are expected to develop in the mountains and deserts Thursday night.


A National Weather Service high wind advisory for mountains and deserts is scheduled to remain in effect from 8 p.m. until 2 a.m. Saturday. The advisory did not extend to the rest of San Diego County.

"A fast-moving upper level disturbance will bring strong and gusty west winds to the mountains and deserts beginning this evening and continuing through Friday night," according to the weather service.

Forecasters said wind speeds would peak Friday afternoon and would begin to weaken Friday night.

The gusty wind could cause hazardous driving conditions, especially along Interstates 8 and 15, the weather service said. Visibility along some roadways could be reduced by blowing sand and dust.
