LOS ANGELES — Gusty winds will blow across portions of the Southland today, producing gusts of up to 60 miles per hour and potentially create challenges for drivers, National Weather Service forecasters said.
A wind advisory indicating an expectation of 35-mph winds will be in effect from 9 a.m. today until 5 a.m. Tuesday in the L.A. County portion of the San Gabriel Mountains and the Antelope Valley. Winds of 20-35 mph are expected, along with gusts of 30-50 mph, and isolated 60-mph gusts are possible this afternoon in the hills near Lake Palmdale, according to an NWS statement.
“Cross winds can make driving difficult, especially for drivers of high-profile vehicles and vehicles towing trailers. Areas of blowing dust can suddenly and dangerously reduce visibilities to near zero,” warned the statement.
A wind advisory will also be in effect from noon until 10 p.m. today in LA County beach cities, metropolitan Los Angeles, the Hollywood Hills, Santa Catalina Island and the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys. Winds of 15-25 mph will sweep those areas and be accompanied by 40 mph gusts this afternoon and evening, according to NWS.
