After a dayslong wind event hit the Santa Clarita Valley, all affected area residents’ power had been restored Thursday, according to Southern California Edison officials.

While most of those affected by Edison’s Public Safety Power Shutoffs had their power restored Tuesday evening, parts of Newhall, Saugus, Canyon Country and Agua Dulce were among those left without power Wednesday, with power restored to all areas by Thursday afternoon.

The PSPS returned as hurricane-force winds, with gusts up to 90 mph, hit the SCV Tuesday, with breezy conditions to continue into Thursday, though winds are expected to die down to 15-25 mph, with gusts up to 30 mph, according to National Weather Service meteorologists.

The SCV is also expected to be hit with a cooler, cloudy and showery weather pattern Friday and Saturday, with chances of rain and some light snow in the mountain areas.
