Gusty winds continued sweeping through portions of Los Angeles County Wednesday, with gusty conditions expected to linger into Thursday.

The National Weather Service issued wind advisories for the Los Angeles County Mountains, excluding the Santa Monica Range, and for the Antelope Valley.

For the L.A. mountains, the advisory will be in place until 10 a.m. Thursday. Forecasters said northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph are expected, with gusts possible up to 50 mph, particularly in the Golden State (5) Freeway corridor.

The winds could blow around unsecured objects and make driving difficult, especially for high-profile vehicles.

In the Antelope Valley, the wind advisory will be in effect until 9 p.m. Thursday.

According to the NWS, winds of 25 to 35 mph, with gusts to 50 mph, are expected, with the strongest winds expected across the western portion of the valley.

The gusty winds and reduced visibility could make driving hazardous for motorists along Highways 14 and 138, forecasters said.

According to the NWS, a low-pressure system is moving into the area, bringing cooler temperatures that will continue through at least Saturday. Warmer weather is expected to return early next week.
