A wind advisory was in effect for parts of San Diego County through Thursday, the National Weather Service announced Wednesday.
People living near and just southwest of mountain crests could see gusts strong enough to take down tree branches or blow around loose items according to the advisory.
Gusts could reach 50 mph.
Anyone traveling into the East County could see dangerous conditions for high-profile vehicles.
Winds should diminish by midday Thursday but could return Saturday, NWS officials said.
