MOJAVE - Chilly winds gusted
to nearly 70 mph Wednesday in the Antelope Valley, stirring up dust and drawing highway warnings for campers and trailers, but causing no major problems.
According to the National Weather Service, winds gusted
to 58 mph in Saugus, while gusts were measured at 69 mph in the mountains just south of Santa Clarita.
After playing the north side of the course and crossing back over the hill, you must play the 135-yard 15th - theoretically the shortest hole on the course - into wind that gusted
to a four-club-longer allowance during a recent early-morning round at Lake Elizabeth.
Wind advisories in effect in the San Fernando, Santa Clarita and Ventura valleys since Wednesday afternoon were lifted Thursday morning, after winds gusted
at 65 mph in the San Gabriel Mountains and 28 mph in Van Nuys, said National Weather Service Meteorologist David Gomberg.
In the Newhall area, where winds gusted
to 50 mph Friday morning, the California Highway Patrol released a wind advisory at 9:51 a.
And firefighters issued a ``red flag'' warning because of the high temperatures, low humidity and winds that gusted
to 40 mph in the West Valley.
