A wind advisory will be in effect until 11 p.m. Monday in the Antelope Valley, including the cities of Lancaster and Palmdale, the National Weather Service said.
Southwest winds of 20 to 30 mph, with gusts up to 45 mph, are in the forecast, except in the foothills, where the winds are expected to reach 25 to 40 mph with local gusts up to 55.
The strongest winds are expected in the afternoon and evening hours, the weather service said.
Reduced visibility from blowing dust will make driving difficult, and unsecured objects could be blown around, according to the NWS.
In addition, tree limbs could be blown down and a few power outages may result.
Major roadways that will likely be affected include Highways 14 and 138.
Drivers are urged to use extra caution, especially if operating a high-profile vehicle.
