Santa Ana winds are blowing across inland areas through Thursday afternoon.

The National Weather Service says a ridge of high pressure will help kick up winds in inland Orange County, along with Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

There's a wind advisory for those areas until 4 p.m. In parts of Los Angeles County, a wind advisory is in place until 6 p.m.

Forecasters say there'll be a second, more powerful and "potentially damaging" windstorm as we head into the weekend.
