Hold on to your hats--today is going to be blustery. A wind advisory remains in effect this morning, says the National Weather Service, as north to northeast winds (the chilly ones) blow 20 to 30 mph through the Los Angeles area. Gusts up to 45 mph can also be expected, particularly in mountainous areas.Stronger winds are expected in the eastern portion of Los Angeles County, and south into Orange and San Diego Counties, and a high wind advisory has been issued. Windy conditions will remain in effect until about mid-afternoon.

Drive safely, and expect debris to be swirling about and in the road. "Residents will see a lot of fallen trees and downed power lines," notes ABC7. "When you do see downed power lines, you are advised to stay in your car if there are wires on the road and call the power company."
