High-wind advisory issued for Southern California

April 08, 2013|By Joseph Serna

A wind-whipped Monday is expected in Southern California as a cold front blasts a stream of cool air through the coast and into the valleys, the National Weather Service said.

A high-wind advisory is in effect across Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley, where gusts could peak at 45 mph, said weather service meteorologist Andrew Rorke.

Gusts could climb to 60 mph in the San Fernando Valley foothills and in the Santa Clarita and the Antelope valleys. Open ridgetops could experience 80 mph to 90 mph winds, Rorke said.

The system will keep the region cooler through Tuesday before warmer weather takes hold Wednesday, pushing temperatures into the lower 80s. Until then, Angelenos can expect a couple days of cloudy weather in the mid-70s and nights in the 40s and 50s, Rorke said.

High-surf advisories will be in effect until Wednesday, with waves between 7 and 9 feet and peaks up to 11 feet.
