Hot, dry winds in Southern California that come from the desert, most common during fall or winter. They bring very low humidity, world class visibility, and perfect weather, until they incite arsonists to start fires, which the winds spread at explosive rates.
While New York was suffering with a mid-January blizzard, the Santa Ana winds came to Southern California and brought gorgeous 85 degree weather and deep blue skies to San Diego, at which point an arsonist scumbag started a fire that burned 750000 acres and 500 homes.

Santa Ana winds are strong, extremely foul winds. They can range from hot to cold, depending on the prevailing temperatures in region. The winds are known for the that wind that they bring, and are infamous for fanning regional wildfires
We were playing poker when Jessica let go of a Santa Ana Wind in front of the fan. We blame it on the 3 baby back ribs she ate. Very hot and foul. It was like 8 people got farted on at once. It's crop dusting on an another level.
