The weekend chill is giving way to cold, gusty winds followed by a slight warming trend in the days ahead, forecaster say — good news for citrus farmers working to save crops.

A high wind watch is in effect for the Santa Clarita, San Fernando and mountain area through Sunday night, said Stuart Seto, a weather specialist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard. Winds of 20 to 40 mph, gusting to 60 mph, are expected with overnight lows in the lower 40s.

Long Beach, Pasadena and Woodland Hills will stay on the chillier side with overnight lows in the lower 30s, Seto said.
