A windblown dust advisory will be in place on Monday in the San Gorgonio Pass and the Coachella Valley due to a forecast of strong gusts.
The National Weather Service is forecasting westerly gusts of up to 70 mph in the mountains and deserts on Monday.
The dust advisory will be in effect through Monday evening.
The gusts could kick up dust and create unhealthy air conditions, according to the South Coast Air Quality Management District.
Areas near the 2020 wildfire burn scars may also see blowing ash, SCAQMD officials warned.
Residents in wind-impacted areas were encouraged to limit exposure by remaining indoors with windows and doors closed, and to avoid vigorous physical activity.
The NWS said blowing dust and sand in the deserts may also greatly reduce visibility.
Forecasters said winds will begin to die down by Monday night and should subside by Tuesday.
