The Memorial Day weekend in Southern California comes with a special weather advisory warning of high winds, particularly around the coast.

According to the National Weather Service, wind gusts of up to 40 mph are possible along Los Angeles beaches in the afternoon and evening Saturday. Temperatures will range from the mid-60s to low 70s along the coast and into the 80s in the valleys.

The winds will continue Sunday but die down by Memorial Day, according to the NWS.

Wind gusts could exceed 50 mph in mountain areas, and officials said the Interstate 5 corridor though the Grapevine could see some of the strongest gusts.
