PALMDALE ( — A high wind warning issued for parts of Southern California has been canceled early, the National Weather Service said Wednesday.

The warning, which was in effect for Los Angeles and Ventura County mountains, had been scheduled to expire at 6 p.m.

An advisory was also issued for the rest of the Southland Wednesday.

The NWS warns that gusty winds can create hazardous driving conditions, especially for high profile vehicles.

The winds did kick back up through the Cajon Pass Wednesday evening, creating problems in Devore and Fontana. The gusts swept a big rig off the northbound 15 Freeway and sent it tumbling down a hill in Fontana shortly before noon. Traffic was backed up for miles as crews worked for an hour to get the big rig upright.
