Gusty winds and light isolated showers lingered in parts of San Diego County's mountains and deserts today as a late-spring storm shifted to the east.

A National Weather Service high wind warning was in effect for the mountains and the deserts until 9 p.m., as is a less severe wind advisory for elsewhere in the county.

Gusts of 74 mph were recorded on Volcan Mountain shortly after 4 a.m., and a 68 mph gust was measured shortly after 3 a.m. at the Lucky Five Ranch, according to the weather service.

Winds of 25-35 mph with gusts of up to 55 mph remain possible through tonight in the mountains and deserts, and coastal and valley areas could see winds of 15-25 mpg with gusts of up to 35 mph, forecasters said. Sustained winds of at least 40 mph or gusts of 58 mph or more can cause property damage.

The wind could make driving difficult and kick up sand and dust in the deserts, reducing visibility. Travel on Interstate 8 through the mountains could be affected.

The storm also brought 1.32 inches of rain to Julian as of about 11:15 a.m., nearly an inch to Palomar Mountain and slightly less in Santa Ysabel, .78 inches in Mt. Woodson, .69 inches in Escondido and .29 in Carlsbad.

Although forecasters said around 1 p.m. isolated showers continued to fall in parts of the county, dry and mostly cloudy conditions were reported west of the mountains. Drier and warmer conditions are expected Sunday.

Along the coast, a beach hazards statement for elevated surf and strong rip currents is scheduled through late Monday night. According to the NWS, the highest waves will occur on south- to southwest-facing beaches, with 3- to 6-

foot waves and sets of up to 8 feet likely.
