Santa Greeted By Santa Ana Winds in S. California

USA Weather: Santa Greeted By Santa Ana Winds

Santa Greeted by Santa Ana Winds reports Santa may have a bumpy ride in Southern California with the next Santa Ana wind event unfolding. High pressure will build into the west coast tonight, ramping up wind gusts in excess of 70 mph in the coastal ranges of Southern California.

The event will last into Christmas Day and could cause some damage such as downing trees.
Winds through Tuesday in the High Desert and the mountains, canyons and passes of Southern California will be as high as 50 mph. Gusts in some areas could reach or top 80 mph.

Another windy spot on Christmas Day will be across the southern Plains with a developing storm system in the southern Rockies. The central Rockies will have some snow with this new disturbance. The northern Plains will also have a bit of snow with a slowly-moving cold front that is expected to be around the area.

The Northeast will be quiet and dry with high pressure in control. The Northwest will be dampened by the next storm system in the train, while a developing storm off of the Southeast coast will bring some rain to the coastal Carolinas and showers to Florida.
