The heavy New Year’s winds seem to be kicking up here at home.
Dense fog this morning on the ground. The mountain looks clear and the sun has just come out.
Heavy winds hitting us this morning near the mountains in the Eaton Canyon area of Altadena. Seems to be 30-40+ mph sustained winds which woke me up around 5:30am and continuing on.
From earlier this morning, there’s a high wind warning:
…HIGH WIND WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 3 PM PDT THIS
* WINDS AND TIMING…Northeast winds increasing to 30 to 45 mph
with gusts to 65 mph. Isolated gusts to 75 mph possible across
* Impacts…Winds this strong may down trees and power lines,
causing property damage or power outages. Cross winds and
blowing dust can make driving difficult, especially for
drivers of high profile vehicles and vehicles towing trailers.
Travel on Interstate 5 and Highway 14 in Los Angeles County
will be affected by the winds.
