One of the colder days we’ve had this winter just happens to coincide with Inauguration Day, with a few snow showers possible early this morning.

It's been an easy winter on the East Coast, but that's not guaranteed to continue.

Gusty winds are the main issue into Inauguration Day. Temperatures drop back to near normal as well.

Damaging Santa Ana winds are ramping up across California, with gusts above hurricane force (74 mph) expected. Wildfire risks are "critical" in parts of the state.

The fire threat is forecast to grow into next week as the wet season has yet to deliver.

Showers pop up in the "warmth" of today. After that, pretty dry through Inauguration Day.

Some ski areas in western Maryland, West Virginia and Southwest Pennsylvania could see more than 6 inches through Monday.

There could be some late-night fog, as well.

Wind advisories and high wind warnings are up in 13 states from the Gulf Coast to Canada.
