Strong winds, with gusts up to 60 mph, are expected to continue across Southern California through Wednesday night, forecasters said.

The National Weather Service issued a high-wind warning for mountain areas in Ventura and Los Angeles counties. Strong northwest to north winds were expected to persist Wednesday, except for a lull in the late morning and early afternoon, the weather service said.

The winds could create dangerous sea conditions and hazardous driving conditions for motorists in mountain areas and the Antelope Valley.

The strongest winds are expected along Interstate 5 on the Grapevine, with gusts up to 60 mph, according to the weather service. Motorists who drove through the pass Tuesday said that wind was blowing snow across the highway in the Frazier Park area.
