Blustery winds have been sweeping across the Southland, and the winds will last through the day today, along with unseasonably cool temps.

The strongest winds will blow through the mountains of Santa Barbara, Ventura, and L.A. counties, and the Antelope Valley, according to the National Weather Service, where a high wind warning has been issued. There the gusts could reach 60 MPH and cause damage.

Late this afternoon and this evening the winds in the I-5 corridor could be as strong as 70 MPH. There are reports of dangerous driving conditions on the I-5 in the Grapevine, where travel is not recommended for campers, trailers, or permit loads, per the DOT.

For the rest of the Los Angeles area, we can expect gusty winds into the night tonight from the coast to the valleys, reaching up to 50 MPH, and we are under a high wind advisory.
