Winds to Lash L.A. Coast Through Thursday

The strongest winds will be over the Malibu coast and south to Pacific Palisades, the National Weather Service says.

Gusty winds are forecast along the Los Angeles County coast through Thursday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

A high wind warning denoting 40-mile per hour winds and gusts of around 60 mph will be in effect until 2 p.m. Thursday in both the San Gabriel and Santa Monica mountains, and a less serious wind advisory will be in force at the same time along the coast—including the cities of Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and Long Beach—in metropolitan Los Angeles, and the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys.

"The strongest winds will be over the Ventura County coastal plain and along the Malibu coast between county line and Pacific Palisades," according to the Weather Service advisory.

Forecasters warned residents about the possibility of downed trees "since the ground is saturated from recent rains and the soils are loosened."

The Weather Service recorded gusts Wednesday morning of 70 mph at Camp Nine in the San Gabriels, 67 mph at Chilao, which is also in the San Gabriels, 66 mph in the Malibu Hills and 37 mph in  Saugus.
