Heavy rain in the mountains easing, Wind Advisory until 2 a.m.
After a day of gusty winds and heavy rain in the mountains, things are calming down into the evening hours. Wind concerns will remain in place as the Wind Advisory is up through 2 a.m. tomorrow. Sustained winds of 20-35 MPH and gusts up to 55 MPH are possible in our local mountains, through the San Gorgonio Pass, and into the high desert. Driving could be difficult in these spots, and unsecured objects could be blown around. Blowing tree limbs could result in power outages. A Wind Advisory has been issued from 10 a.m. Monday to 2 a.m. Tuesday.
Wind gusts have been impressive, kicking up sand and dust throughout the Valley.
Rainfall has been non-existent in the Valley except for light sprinkles, but heavier rain in the mountains and Inland Empire pushed close to 2 inches in many areas.
Sunshine returns by Tuesday, and temperatures warm to the low 90's by Thursday.
