LANCASTER (CBSLA.com) — Strong winds blew through Lancaster Wednesday night though there were no reports of damage.

Tony Chata, who lives in the area, says he’s keeping an eye on his fence which he says has already blown over once.

“It’s been windy like this for the last couple of days,” he said. “I think earlier it was like 50 or 60 mile per hour winds. It was just ridiculous. It’s probably the most wind we’ve had in quite some time.”

In fact, several people said it feels like a different season altogether with the wind and the rain.

“It feels like wintertime, it doesn’t feel like springtime,” said one woman, while another said: “It should be warm, at least 70s and definitely no wind. I wish it went away. It’s horrible.”

Meteorologist Rich Fields said an area of low pressure was pushing into the Southland Wednesday and was expected to hit the mountains first. The areas of Santa Clarita, northern San Fernando Valley, and the San Gabriel Valley could experience shower activity Wednesday evening.

Meanwhile, cloudy skies were expected to stick around overnight and slight chance of showers was expected to continue through Thursday, especially for the Inland Empire and mountain communities.

Fields said it would be mostly sunny through the weekend.
