The National Weather Service is warning that drains 50 to 80 mph are anticipated for California now with intense fire danger.
The most damaging winds and greatest fire threat on Tuesday is south of the San Francisco Bay region into Los Angeles.
A red flag warning was issued to the region where dry offshore winds could cause intense fire conditions.
The Bay area won't lose out on the winds now and they might be gusty at 30 to 60 miles and locally 75 miles is possible.
The snow in the previous 24 hours caused injuries, spinouts and partial closures into I-90 involving Buffalo, New York, and Erie, Pennsylvania.
The storm total might reach 18 inches from western New York and Pennsylvania after now.
That cold air circulates to the northern U.S. this afternoon with wind chills below zero to get some.
A number of the cold air will move in the Northeast tonight and spread throughout the region at the end of the week.
