East County News Service
October 11, 2021 (San Diego) – The National Weather Service has issued a high wind warning from 11 a.m. today to 3 a.m. Tuesday. Gusts up to 65 miles per hour are forecast in mountain areas including Julian and Pine Valley, with west to northwest winds of 30-40 mph. Gusts up to 45 mph are possible in San Diego County’s deserts, valleys and coastal areas, where a wind advisory is in effect.
These damaging winds can blow down trees and power lines, so power outages are possible.
Secure outdoor objects which may become projectiles in high winds, and close patio umbrellas.
Travel will be difficult through desert slopes of the San Diego and Riverside County mountains, especially for high profile vehicles. Blowing sand and dust will reduce visibility in desert areas.
