A storm packing more wind than rain will brush San Diego County today, and while the rain should be short-lived, strong winds behind the front will stick around for a couple of days.
The National Weather Service said wind gusts up to 25 mph would sweep through coastal and valley areas this afternoon. A wind advisory was scheduled for those areas from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Sustained west winds of 20-30 mph are forecast for the mountains, along with gusts up to about 45 mph this afternoon, according to the NWS. Slightly stronger gusts were predicted for the deserts.
The NWS issued a wind advisory for the mountains and deserts from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., along with a high wind warning from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. Thursday.
Today’s highs around the region will be mostly in the 60s.
