Gusty winds will continue through Monday afternoon with a chance of rain in Los Angeles and Orange counties, according to the National Weather Service. The weather is expected to warm up later in the day, with highs in the 60s forecasted for the region. A wind advisory is in effect until 4 p.m.

The winds could make driving difficult, especially for larger vehicles, the weather service said. Gusts also pose a danger to drivers because areas of blowing dust can suddenly reduce visibility to near-zero on the road.

Forecasters said they expect frost or freezing temperatures in the Antelope Valley on Monday night and Tuesday morning as a cold front sweeps across the region. Temperatures may drop below 28 degrees, causing a hard freeze.
