One More High-Wind Morning in Southland

LOS ANGELES (CNS)- Winds strong enough to plague drivers and topple trees and power lines will continue to lash away in the Southland this morning, but the wind event was expected to end at noon, forecasters said.

A wind advisory denoting winds of at least 35 miles per hour will be in effect until noon in the San Gabriel Mountains, the Santa Monica Mountains Recreational Area, the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys, the coastal zone consisting beach cities, metropolitan Los Angeles, Downtown L.A and the Hollywood Hills, and Inland Orange County.

National Weather Service forecasters said winds of 25 to 35 miles per hour with 55-mph gusts would blow across the San Gabriel Mountains, winds of 20- 30 mph with 50-mph gusts would buffet the Santa Monicas and the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys, winds of 15-30 mph with 45-mph gusts would sweep the L.A. County coastal zone and inland Orange County.

“Gusty winds will make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. In addition, the gusty winds will bring the potential for downed trees and powerlines,” warned an NWS statement.

NWS forecasters said drivers would find conditions particularly challenging on Interstate 5, the 118 Freeway, highways 14, 23, 101, and 126, and Pacific Coast Highway in Los Angeles County, as well as Highway 33 in Ventura County.
