The California Highway Patrol issued a wind advisory warning Tuesday for Interstate 5 travelers, due to high winds between Highway 118 and Fort Tejon and on Highway 14 through the Antelope Valley.

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

The wind has not posed any problems for county firefighters Tuesday, but some stations around the county were allotted extra manpower as a precautionary measure, Fire Department Capt. Mark Savage said.

Gusty winds that greeted Santa Clarita Valley residents Tuesday morning picked up throughout the day, reaching nearly 50 mph by the evening, National Weather Service forecasters said.

Dust was kicked up throughout  the Antelope Valley, where gusts also reached around 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 Tuesday, 83 today and in the 80s on Thursday and Friday.

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