Strong north to northeast winds with gusts as high as 60 mph are forecast to begin early Wednesday morning and continue through Thursday morning in Southern California.
The National Weather Service said the greatest risk from the gusty conditions will be an increase in fire danger, though driving could be difficult in some areas, especially in passes and canyons.
The strongest winds will be along the coastal foothills of the San Bernardino and Santa Ana Mountains. Winds will be generally in the 30 to 40 mph range, with gusts to 60 mph and even 70 mph.
On Tuesday, before the winds develop, San Diego should be mostly sunny with highs 65 to 70 near the coast slightly warmer inland. Lows Tuesday night will be 48 to 56 with low clouds and fog in some areas.
