The National Weather Service says Thursday’s winds are being created by strong surface high pressure over the Great Basin have produced gusts up to 72 mph at Chilao in the San Gabriel Mountains northeast of Los Angeles.

High-wind warnings have been issued in many areas, with forecasters saying the gusts could make mountain travel difficult and could topple trees and down power lines.
