Strong Santa Ana Winds Forecast To Strike The Southland:

On the heels of a weekend storm that dropped two inches of rain in some areas, strong Santa Ana winds will strike the Southland this week, the National Weather Service said today.

The winds will result from a fast-moving inside slider, a weather system that will travel east of the Greater Los Angeles area, NWS forecasters said, adding that the winds will sweep the region from Tuesday morning through Thursday.

Gusty northerly winds are expected to affect travel on the Interstate 5 Corridor in the San Gabriel Mountains as well as in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys and in the Sepulveda Pass, according to the NWS. The Malibu Hills and Hollywood Hills also will be affected.

The winds are expected generate gusts of between 35 and 45 miles per hour, with a lull expected Tuesday afternoon and early evening, followed by even stronger gusts on Wednesday.

“There will be the possibility of some trees being uprooted due to the saturated ground from recent rains combined with the strong winds,” an NWS statement warned.

A weaker offshore flow will continue through at least Thursday and possibly on Friday.

The NWS forecast partly cloudy skies today and highs of 58 on Mount Wilson; 59 in Palmdale and Lancaster; 62 in Avalon, San Clemente and Laguna Beach; 63 in Newport Beach and at LAX; 64 in Saugus and Mission Viejo; 65 in Long Beach, Pasadena, San Gabriel and Burbank; 66 in downtown L.A, Yorba Linda, Fullerton, Anaheim and Irvine; and 67 in Woodland Hills.

A warming trend is expected starting Tuesday with the arrival of the Santa Anas. It will peak Thursday. By Sunday, temperatures will be largely back at today’s levels. This week’s forecast of highs in downtown L.A., for example, indicates highs of 66 today, 71 Tuesday, 74 Wednesday, 75 Thursday, 72 Friday, 69 Saturday and 66 Sunday.
