LOS ANGELES (AP) - Strong winds are persisting across parts of Southern California a day after severe thunderstorms moved through.

The National Weather Service says the winds will be felt through Tuesday morning in mountains, valleys and desert areas.

Winds topping 50 mph were reported in some areas and gusts hit 67 mph at Whitaker Peak in the Santa Monica Mountains. Forecasters warn that driving could be dangerous, especially for high-profile vehicles.

The winds are accompanied by large and potentially dangerous surf conditions on west-facing beaches. Officials are warning of waves topping 18 feet, rip currents and possible minor flooding in low-lying areas.
