Gusty winds will continue to whip up frenzy in the skies of SoCal today, and the I-5 corridor will get the biggest and most dangerous gusts.

The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Warning for some Ventura and Los Angeles counties' mountain ranges and areas which warns of "potentially damaging wind gusts to near 60 MPH" in the I-5 corridor, as well as periods of winds ranging from 25-40 MPH, some as high as 65 MPH. The High Wind Warning is in effect until 3 p.m. tomorrow.

Elsewhere, in the San Fernando Valley and the Santa Monica Mountains Recreational Area, a High Wind Advisory cautions of "Northwest to north winds of 20 to 35 MPH with gusts up to 45 to 50 MPH" that will "be strongest through and below passes and canyons."
