WILLIAMS: Weather Channel meteorologist Jim Cantore is tonight. And, Jim , did I have it about right at the top of the broadcast saying this is one of the more unusual things weather does anywhere on the planet?
JIM CANTORE reporting: Absolutely. And it's going to do it again tonight, unfortunately, Brian , because what we're going to see is what would be more of a typical Santa Ana . In other words, the winds will have more of an easterly component and come down through the Simi Valley and the San Fernando Valley . Last night what made this so unusual here and what caused what looks like, as you and I have both been in, hurricane or even tornado damage, was the fact that we had more of a northerly component in that wind. Even still, 80- to 100-mile-per-hour wind gusts. Just incredible. Tonight, they may be a hair tamer, but areas that didn't get it last night could very well get it tonight. So once again, unusually cold and breezy conditions expected tonight right through the weekend.
WILLIAMS: Just thankful it isn't the height of fire season. Jim Cantore in Pasadena .
