Baby, It's Cold Outside! Winter Weather In So Cal

Posted: Updated:

(FOX 11 / CNS) Gusty winds are expected to batter the Southland today as a cold snap wraps itself around the region.

A cold front from Canada combined with a tight surface pressure gradient over southwestern California will generate  high winds from this morning through Wednesday morning, according to a National Weather Service advisory.

In Los Angeles County, a wind advisory will be in force in the San Gabriel Mountains from 10 a.m. today to 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Cold air behind the front may result in a couple of hours of hard freeze condition in interior Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties Wednesday morning. The Antelope and Santa Ynez valleys will suffer the same fate in the morning on Thursday and Friday.

In the Antelope Valley, a freeze watch will be in effect from late Wednesday through Friday morning, with temperatures of 19 to 29 degrees Fahrenheit possible Thursday and Friday mornings.

Southwest-to-west winds will blow through the Antelope Valley at between 20 and 30 mph with 45-mph gusts this morning through this afternoon, diminishing late tonight, according to the NWS advisory. In the foothills, 50-mph gusts are possible, it said.

"Gusty winds along with suddenly reduced visibilities from blowing dust may make driving hazardous,'' the advisory warned, adding that sub-freezing temperatures can kill vegetation and animals ad cause water pipes to burst.

Antelope Valley temperature will be around 10 degrees lower Wednesday, but in many other communities they will remain at today's levels.
