Gusty, potentially damaging winds continue this morning, prompting a First Alert Weather Alert until 10 a.m.

High Wind Warnings and Wind Advisories are in place throughout the region from this afternoon through tomorrow morning. This includes a Wind Advisory for the Coachella Valley until 10 a.m. Gusts upwards of 70 MPH are possible. Take caution if traveling through these areas, especially in a high-profile vehicle!

Winds will peak in the early morning hours. Widespread gusts are possible, with the strongest winds occurring nearest the pass and along the I-10 corridor. Mountain and high desert communities will likely see some potentially strong gusts as well. Winds will diminish as we move into the afternoon.

Because the blowing sand and dust, the South Coast Air Quality District has issued a Windblown Dust Advisory until Noon today.
