Wild winds have been blowing hard through the region since Sunday, but luckily Tuesday things will die down. However, Los Angeles can expect another "wind event" kicking in on Wednesday.

Monday's fierce winds were responsible for numerous power outages and downed trees around the Southland.

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power said this morning that it has restored power to all the 13,000 customers affected by Monday's outages, reports City News Service. Additionally, Southern California Edison said around 1,000 customers were still without power this morning, 830 of them around Riverside County. Areas affected by SCE outages Monday included Beverly Hills, Rolling Hills Estates and Rosemead.

According to the National Weather Service, the mountains will still be experiencing wind gusts of 55 to 65 miles per hour today, and at our beaches there will be high surf and an elevated rip current risk.

Wednesday, L.A. County is expected to bear the brunt of a high pressure system building next door in Nevada into this evening, bringing us a northeast wind event, says the NWS, so be ready for slightly warmer temps and some good ol' Santa Ana winds.

Temps today will be in the low 70s to the upper 70s, and should get about five degrees warmer tomorrow.
