Strong winds were being felt in many areas of the Southland Saturday, with wind advisories in place until Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles, the mountains and most valley areas.

Gusts were expected to reach as high as 55 mph in the Los Angeles County mountains Saturday, with isolated gusts up to 65 mph across exposed ridgetops, according to the National Weather Service.

Some of the strongest winds are expected along Interstate 5 in the Grapevine.

The winds will blow around unsecured objects and make driving difficult, especially for high-profile vehicles. The Weather Service also warned that tree limbs could be blown down and a few power outages may result.

In the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys, gusts as high as 45 to 50 mph were forecast.

The winds were expected to die down by Sunday night.
