High winds returned to parts of Southern California on Monday, and even stronger gusts were possible overnight.
Malibu saw 62 mph gusts around midday, while nearby areas reported winds above 40 mph.
Winds reaching up to 70 mph are possible overnight, NBCLosAngeles.com reported.
Nearly 34,000 Southern California Edison customers remained without power Monday as a result of last week's wind storms. A second round is certain to impede cleanup and repair efforts.
Tens of thousands of homes and businesses remained without power for a second day on Friday after powerful winds toppled trees and power lines and left debris across a wide swath of Southern California.
High wind warnings will be in effect through Tuesday afternoon in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
The wind will increase the risk of wildfires and make driving difficult and hazardous, the National Weather Service said.
"Northeast winds are expected to increase sharply late tonight across the mountains and valleys of Los Angeles and Ventura counties," the weather service said on its website Sunday. The strongest winds there are expected to hit on Monday, gusting to 70 pmh offshore and 60 mph in coastal and valley areas.
Inland winds will also blow up to 60 mph in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, the weather service said. The gusts will make driving risky for tall vehicles and could blow over trees.
