San Diego County is in for another bout of strong winds Tuesday, and could get light rain and a dusting of snow in the mountains.
A high wind warning for the mountains and deserts expired at 3 a.m., but a less severe wind advisory continues until 3 a.m. Wednesday. Sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 45 mph are possible.

Snow levels will be as low as 4500 feet, with a few inches of snow possible above that elevation. The low pressure system will move out Wednesday night.
Peak winds from the system have been as high as 77 mph on Volcan Mountain; 66 mph in Harrison Park; 58 mph in Julian; 57 mph in Boulevard; 53 mph in Borrego Springs; 45 mph at Lake Cuyamaca; 44 mph on Palomar Mountain; 36 mph on Mount Woodson; and 33 mph in Point Loma.
