(Ἐρινύες-the angry ones)

The Furies, in Greek Erinyes, or euphemistically Eumenides, were avenging spirits of retributive justice. Their names, when in course of time their number had come to be fixed as three, were Alecto, Megaera, and Tisiphone. Their task was to punish crimes not within the reach of human justice.

- from Bulfinch’s Mythology

They are not usually associated with winter although they have been known to cause violent snow-storms.
