    Looks like it’s going to be a windy weekend: the National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a wind advisory for some parts of San Diego County.

    For now, the wind advisory remains in effect through 7 a.m. Sunday and impacts San Diego County mountain and desert areas. The NWS says mountain ridge tops, gaps and slopes will experience the brunt of the winds through Saturday night.

    The strong winds are expected to reach 35 to 50 mph. The gusts will likely impact visibility on the roads for motorists, with potential reductions in visibility from blowing dust and sand in desert areas.

    Drivers are urged to use extra caution, especially motorists with high-profile vehicles, according to the advisory.
