Drizzle and Wind in Friday's Forecast

Windy conditions could generate strong rip currents at the beach, where there's a 20 percent chance of drizzle in the morning.

Powerful winds and surf, along with a slight chance of showers, are in the forecast at the coast Friday ahead of a milder, warmer Memorial Day Weekend.

An unseasonably cold, upper low means drizzle and measureable amounts of rain are possible before 11 a.m. Friday, National Weather Service meteorologists said. There's a 20 percent chance of light rain for most of Los Angeles County with highs nearing 67 degrees at the beach.

Meanwhile, gusty west winds are expected to redevelop across coastal areas Friday afternoon into the evening.

The Westside was unaffected by powerful winds that whipped across many parts of the Southland the past three days. City News Service reported that on Wednesday, the Weather Service recorded gusts of 69 miles per hourĀ at Whitaker Springs in the San Gabriels. Gusts of around 40 mph swirled around the Antelope Valley.

Looking ahead, forecasters warned that winds and potentially high surf could generate strong rip currents along west-facing shores through early Saturday morning.
