The California Highway Patrol issued a wind advisory today warning travelers on Interstate 5 of high winds between Highway 118 and Fort Tejon and on Highway 14 through the Antelope Valley.

Specifically, travel is not recommended for high-profile vehicles, the CHP warning said.

The wind has not posed any problems for county firefighters so far this afternoon, but some stations around the county were allotted extra manpower as a precautionary measure, Fire Department Capt. Mark Savage said at 3 p.m.

Gusty winds that greeted Santa Clarita Valley residents this morning were expected to  pick up through the day and could reach 50 mph by the evening, National Weather Service forecasters said.

Blowing dust was expected in the Antelope Valley, where gusts were also expected to 50 mph; a rip current and gale-force wind warnings were issued for beachgoers and mariners.

Temperatures were expected to climb this week, reaching a high of 74 degrees today, 86 on Wednesday and the 90s on Thursday and Friday.

Sunny skies and breezy conditions were expected to continue through the week, though the wind was due to diminish starting Wednesday.
