The freeze is officially over in Southern California as a ridge of high pressure has built in, pushing the cold air to the east. This freeze was correctly predicted, and it was recorded the worst freeze since 1990 in Southern California.
Gusty winds will be the main story as the offshore flow continues through Thursday.
Gusts are near 30 mph through the pass locations, some areas reporting 40 mph gusts. The gusts will become stronger due to the wind direction turning from northeast to a more east-northeast to east direction through the next 24 hours.
