The National Weather Service issued wind warnings early Thursday for the bulk of northern California.

A wind advisory covering a rather large space, from north of Redding to Stockon and parts of the Bay Area, warned of gusts of up to 45 miles per hour. The California Highway Patrol said “high-profile” vehicles travelling through Yolo and Sacramento Counties should take care.

These winds are expected into Friday evening.

In the foothills, stronger winds are expected through Friday and into Saturday morning. The area affected stretches from Burney to well past Yosemite, into southern part of the state. Areas of note, according to the NWS, are Chester, Quincy and Blue Canyon.

Weather experts say 65 mile-an-hour gusts are likely, as are downed trees.
