Winds Depart, Leaving Cool Weather in place Today

The fresh snow is visible in Long Valley above the Mountain Station on Mt. San Jacinto:

Now winds are calmer, skies are cleared, and all Valley related wind advisories have expired. Here's a look at some of the strongest gusts recorded around the Coachella Valley:

Winds are calming down nicely, and while we may see the occasional gust, winds are generally expected to remain below the 10mph mark.
