A High Wind Warning has been issued for 10:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. Saturday for all areas in yellow. This includes the Coachella Valley, parts of the High Desert, as well as San Bernardino and Riverside County mountains.
Wind gusts will strengthen between 50-60 mph.
The strongest gusts around the valley look to occur between 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Keep this in mind for any outdoor activities, like early Valentine's Day dining. Gusts on the valley floor around 6 p.m. reaching up to 60 mph.
Stronger winds will be felt through the San Gorgonio Pass up to 70 mph. Visibility will also be low at times due to blowing sand and dusts. This can also decrease surrounding air quality. South Coast Air Quality Management District has issued a Wind Blown Dust Advisory for the Coachella Valley through Saturday night.
Travel will also be difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. Be on the lookout for any downed trees or power lines. Power outages will also be possible during this time.
Winds will turn offshore and remain breezy on Sunday but are not expected to be as gusty.
Seasonable temperatures will join for all of the holiday weekend with partly sunny skies both Sunday (Valentine's Day) and Monday (Presidents Day).
