After freezing conditions in some parts of Southern California overnight, the region should experience a sunny day Wednesday, weather officials said.

The temperature in Los Angeles is expected to reach a high of 68 degrees and a low of 39 degrees.

As of early Wednesday morning, Southern California Edison said nearly 3,000 customers, primarily in the San Gabriel Valley, still were without power after last week's fierce windstorm downed power lines. 

The National Weather Service lifted its red-flag warning in Los Angeles and Ventura counties for the first time since the storm blew through six days ago.

However, the agency advised that dry and breezy conditions could still create wildfire conditions.
