In the next 24 hours Santa Clarita Valley will get windy and cold - in that order.

A wind advisory is in affect due to strong Santa Ana winds expected to begin this morning, David Sweet, meteorologist at the National Weather Service said today.

The winds are expected to subside late in the day, giving way to near freezing temperatures, he said.

“Usually, Santa Ana conditions start after sunrise,” Sweet said. “We’re expecting northeast winds to be 25 to 35 miles per hour, gusting to 60.”

The winds are expected to die down in late afternoon.

On a positive note, the skies over the Santa Clarita Valley are expected to be sunny with no rain expected for another week.

“It’ll get quite chilly, absolutely near freezing,” Sweet added.

Monday night’s predicted overnight low temperatures are expected to be in the “thirties and lower forties,” he said, with even lower temperatures for Tuesday night.

“As we get closer to Tuesday we will assess the situation because issuing a frost warning is always a possibility,” he said.
