Yes, it’s windy. Much of Southern California remains under wind advisory
Southern Californians are in for another blustery day Wednesday with forecasters predicting winds strong enough to topple over big rigs on the highway and waves 9 feet high at the beach.
Wind advisories issued by the National Weather Service are expected to expire by the afternoon, but until then, gusts could top 55 mph in Santa Clarita and 45 mph in the San Fernando Valley, National Weather Service meteorologist Todd Hall said.
On Tuesday, the strongest winds in the region were at Whitaker Peak, which clocked an 82 mph gust, the Weather Service said. Lower elevations saw winds between 20 and 40 mph throughout the day.
In Santa Barbara County, Montecito Hills recorded a wind gust of 75 mph.
There’s little hazard from the wind except as a risk for wayward vehicles and overturned big rigs on valley highways, authorities said.
