Wind Advisory Issued for Victor Valley and Surrounding Valley and Mountain Areas

SAN BERNARDINO – A wind advisory has been issued for the Victor Valley, Lucerne Valley, Johnson Valley, Northern Coachella Valley, and the San Bernardino County Mountains Tuesday morning.

The wind advisory will be in effect until Wednesday at 8:00 a.m. the U.S. National Weather Service (NWS) said. Strong and gusty winds are expected to move westward through the mountains and deserts Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning. Winds are expected to be 20 to 30 mph with gusts of 45 to 55 mph. Local gusts of up to 65 mph are expected in the windiest locations.

Winds will strengthen throughout the afternoon on Tuesday with the strongest winds Tuesday night. Winds will weaken by Wednesday morning. The NWS said that visibility may be reduced at times because of blowing sand and/or dust. These winds and reduced visibility may make driving difficult, especially for those driving high-profile vehicles.

Drivers should watch for broken tree limbs, debris, and possible downed power lines. You should never drive over or attempt to touch a downed power line. Keep children and pets away from a downed power line and call your local electricity service provider, like Southern California Edison or your local authorities to report the downed lines.

The NWS said that a Wind Advisory is issued when winds of 35 mph are expected.
