LOS ANGELES (AP) — Gusts nearing 50 mph could make for hazardous driving as powerful winds persist in parts of Southern California.

The National Weather Service says high wind advisories remain posted for mountain, canyon and valley areas of Ventura and Los Angeles counties through Wednesday afternoon.

Forecasters warn that sudden crosswinds winds could make driving difficult, especially for high-profile vehicles and those towing trailers.

Winds will be calmer over the Los Angeles basin, where humidity levels will plunge and temperatures will spike into the 80s and even 90s.

Gusts earlier in the week brought down trees and knocked out power to thousands across the LA area.
