A new round of gusty Santa Ana winds was expected to develop in Southern California on Tuesday as some cities were still cleaning up extensive damage from last weekend’s powerful winds.

The National Weather Service the winds would develop in the afternoon and night and last into Wednesday.

The offshore flow will also warm up temperatures, forecasters said.

Last weekend’s winds caused extensive damage in foothill communities east of Los Angeles.

Gusts Friday night and Saturday toppled hundreds of trees onto streets, homes and cars, and caused power outages.

In the especially hard-hit city of Claremont, four Los Angeles County wildfire camp crews were expected Tuesday to help continue cleanup, a city statement said.

Classes were canceled Monday in the Claremont Unified School District for a review of safety issues on its campuses, two of which lost power.
