November 8, 2010 |  4:56 pm

The National Weather Service is predicting high winds and frost in portions of Southern California on Monday evening, making for potentially treacherous driving conditions and the possibility of property damage.

The weather service issued a high wind warning for mountain areas in Los Angeles County, excluding the Santa Monica range. The warning remains in effect until about 3 a.m. Tuesday.

Winds of 35 to 50 mph are expected in much of Southern California, with gusts of up to 60 mph predicted through the Interstate 5 corridor in the early evening. The winds are expected to increase in the evening before decreasing overnight.

The Antelope Valley and the interior valleys of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties will probably see frost late Monday night and early Tuesday.
