Southern California is in for a round of Santa Ana winds as the latest storm system moves to the east and strong surface high pressure builds in the Great Basin.

The National Weather Service says the gusts should kick in by Tuesday morning, followed by an afternoon and evening lull and then a resumption of the northeast winds.

Forecasters say a wind advisory may be issued Tuesday night into Wednesday due to gusts from 35 mph to 50 mph.

The weather service warns that the winds could uproot trees from ground saturated by the very rainy weekend. Some locations inLos Angeles and Ventura counties received well over 2 inches of precipitation.

Moisture left over from the rains allowed areas of dense fog to form overnight.
