May 26, 2011 |  7:52 am

Strong, gusty winds that could be hazardous to drivers are expected Thursday and possibly into the weekend, forecasters warned.

The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory early Thursday, saying that 25-to-35-mile per hour north winds with gusts of 45 mph are expected through at least the night and possibly through Saturday.

The winds will be strongest in Los Angeles County mountain areas, the Interstate 5 corridor and along California 14 and 138 in the Antelope Valley.

Gusts could reach 60 mph on exposed ridge tops.

Crosswinds may also blow clouds of dust and sand and create hazardous driving conditions, especially for larger vehicles.
