But the low pressure system won’t produce significant rain


It’s time to tie down your light-weight lawn furniture.

Winds off the ocean will gust 25 mph to 30 mph at San Diego County beaches late Monday and early Tuesday and 50 mph to 60 mph across some inland valleys and foothills, with pops to 80 mph at some exposed transition areas between the region’s mountains and deserts.

The National Weather Service says a low pressure system from the Pacific Northwest will move through the region, deepening the marine layer to about 3,500 feet and whipping up winds almost every where.

The weather will turn breezy at local beaches by late Monday afternoon then become very windy, with the strongest gusts likely to occur from 10 p.m. Monday to early Tuesday morning.

The wildest winds are expected to hit along eastern Interstate 8, roughly along the dividing line between San Diego and Imperial counties — especially in the Boulevard area — the weather service says. Dust clouds are possible.

A high wind warning will be in effect in desert areas from 4 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. on Tuesday.

Monday’s daytime highs in San Diego will range from the mid-to-upper 60s. Tuesday’s high will be 1 to 62 degrees. The seasonal average is 68.

The storm is not expected to produce significant rain.
