LOS ANGELES — Forecasters say Southern California is in for an extended period of gusty Santa Ana winds and summerlike warming.

The National Weather Service says the northeast winds will last into early next week.

The offshore flow will produce gusts of 40 mph to 50 mph in the mountains and 35 mph to 45 mph in wind-prone valleys, making travel difficult for drivers of high-profile vehicles.

Temperatures will top the 80s by Sunday.

Combined with low relative humidity, the winds will also elevate wildfire danger.

The Santa Anas are being caused by building surface high pressure in the Great Basin.
