The Pasadena and Glendale region should be spared the heavy destruction caused by a massive windstorm Nov. 30, according to the National Weather Service.
A high wind warning from 3 a.m. Friday to 3 p.m. Saturday mostly affects the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys, with 60 mph gusts possible amid sustained winds of 40 mph.
Ryan Kittell, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service, said the more "classic" Santa Ana wind pattern would be "nothing like last time" -- referring to the windstorm that swept through the San Gabriel Valley overnight Nov. 31, causing tens of millions of dollars in damage, felling hundreds of trees and spurring widespread power outages.
No wind advisory is planned for the Pasadena region, which saw the heaviest damage two weeks ago. Northeasterly winds are expected to reach 15 mph in the area through Saturday, according to the weather service.
In the Glendale-Burbank area, which falls under the advisory, winds could be stronger, with gusts of up to 50 mph, and sustained winds of about 25 mph through Saturday.
