Possibly damaging winds were expected to whip Southern California early Thursday with gusts of up to 35 mph as the sun returns to Los Angeles.

The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory for the morning and early afternoon. High temperatures are expected to be in the 60s and 70s.

Temperatures Thursday night in Los Angeles are expected to fall to the 40s and 50s.

Mountains in San Bernardino and Riverside counties were under a winter storm warning Thursday morning as an Alaskan storm leaves the region. Big Bear Lake, which is at an elevation of 7,000 feet, received 12 inches of snow in the recent storm, good news for skiers and snowboarders who have been unhappy with a dry winter.

No storms are forecast for the upcoming three-day weekend.
