An evening of high winds and cold weather was followed by more of the same Thursday morning, with  temperatures expected to dip even lower Friday before more rain hits the region this weekend.

High wind gusts overnight hit 61 mph in Glendale and 90 mph in Angeles National Forest, said National Weather Service specialist Stuart Seto. A high-wind advisory remains in effect along the coast until noon, which means winds of 15 to 25 mph, with gusts of up to 45 mph.

Authorities issued a high-wind warning for the mountains as well as for the San Gabriel, Santa Clarita and San Fernando valleys, with sustained winds of 35 to 50 mph and gusts of up to 80 mph. Those gusts will still measure up to 55 mph later Thursday afternoon. High-surf advisories have been issued along the coast.

In the Hollywood Hills, a tree fell on a house shortly after 5 a.m. Thursday in the 3200 block of Hillock Drive, knocking down power lines, said Erik Scott, spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department. No one was hurt.
