The National Weather Service has extended its current wind advisory for the Santa Clarita Valley to Friday at 6 a.m., as strong wind persists.

Northwest to north winds 20 to 20 mph with gusts up to 50 mph will continue through Friday morning, according to the service.

The strongest winds will occur below passes and canyons, and are likely to make driving more hazardous in the Interstate 5 and Highway 14 corridors, especially for high-profile vehicles, according to the service.

For travelers beyond the SCV, blowing dust will likely be a problem in the Antelope Valley through Friday. Gale force winds are expected to develop across coastal waters, and create hazardous rip currents along area beaches.

A wind advisory means that winds of 35 mph or greater are forecast.
