The warning, first issued early Monday, did not extent to coastal or desert areas.
Wedneday’s forecast for the inland valleys and mountains areas called for sustained east winds of 25 to 35 miles per hour and gusts up to 65 mph. Also, the low daytime humidity will be around 5 percent, according to the NWS.
The agency also issued a high wind warning for the valleys and mountains until noon today, and a wind advisory from noon to 6 p.m.
A high wind warning is issued when hazardous winds capable of causing property damage are occurring or expected. The wind advisory signals a chance of winds strong enough to make driving difficult, especially for motorists with high profile vehicles.
“Watch for broken tree limbs and debris on roadways,” an NWS advisory said.
Warm, dry conditions were expected to persist in the region Thursday and Friday, but winds will weaken, reducing the risk of wildfire, according to the weather service.
