The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a strong wind advisory for the Antelope and Santa Clarita Valleys from 5 a.m. Monday through 5 a.m. Tuesday.

Damaging winds gusting to 50-70 mph are expected with the strongest winds in the afternoon and evening.

Wind advisories are in effect for most coastal and valley areas through Monday evening, with gusts between 35 and 55 mph.

There is also a high likelihood of activity called mountain surges on Monday and Monday nights in the mountains of Los Angeles County and Antelope Valley.

A mountain wave can create significant damage and cause falling trees, power outages and dust in the environment, which could limit visibility while driving and traveling.

Temperatures are forecast in the mid to high 60s in Los Angeles by Monday, but will drop into the lower 50s and 60s in coastal areas and valleys on Tuesday.

Strong winds and low temperatures will cause wind chill readings to drop to around 0 degrees in the mountains on Monday.
