...DISCUSSION FROM LOS ANGELES/OXNARD...

...PROLONGED PERIOD OF GUSTY SANTA ANA WINDS WITH WARM AND DRY
CONDITIONS WILL BRING ELEVATED FIRE DANGER THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF
NEXT WEEK...

...POTENTIAL FOR HIGH FIRE DANGER SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY...

HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT BUILDING INTO CALIFORNIA WITH SURFACE HIGH
PRESSURE BUILDING INTO THE GREAT BASIN WILL KEEP GUSTY OFFSHORE
WINDS OVER MUCH OF SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA TONIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY.
NORTHEAST WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO GENERALLY GUST BETWEEN 35 AND 45
MPH ACROSS COASTAL AND VALLEY AREAS OF LOS ANGELES AND VENTURA
COUNTIES SATURDAY INTO SUNDAY WITH GUSTS BETWEEN 45 AND 50 MPH IN
THE MOUNTAINS. THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF OFFSHORE WINDS
INCREASING SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY...WHEN PEAK GUSTS OF UP TO 65
MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE IN THE MOUNTAINS AND BETWEEN 45 AND 55 MPH AT
LOWER ELEVATIONS. OFFSHORE WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE INTO
TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY BUT SPEEDS ARE EXPECTING TO TREND DOWNWARD.

THERE WILL BE A STEADY WARM-UP DURING THIS PERIOD...WITH
TEMPERATURES CLIMBING INTO THE 80S SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY. THE
WARMEST LOCATIONS COULD POSSIBLY REACH 90 DEGREES ON TUESDAY.
HUMIDITIES WILL GENERALLY FALL TO BETWEEN 10 AND 15 PERCENT ACROSS
MUCH OF THE WIND PRONE AREAS OF LOS ANGELES AND VENTURA COUNTIES
FOR SATURDAY...WITH POTENTIAL WIDESPREAD SINGLE DIGIT READINGS
SUNDAY INTO TUESDAY. IN ADDITION THERE WILL BE POOR HUMIDITY
RECOVERIES EACH NIGHT OVER THE WEEKEND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK...WITH
MANY FOOTHILL AND MOUNTAIN AREAS REMAINING BELOW 20 PERCENT. THE
PROLONGED PERIOD OF GUSTY OFFSHORE WINDS...WARM TEMPERATURES...AND
LOW HUMIDITIES WILL BRING AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF ELEVATED FIRE
DANGER...ALTHOUGH HIGH FIRE DANGER WILL BE POSSIBLE SUNDAY NIGHT
AND MONDAY. WHILE WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL MEET THE WEATHER PORTION
OF A RED FLAG WARNING...THE CURRENT FUELS STATUS DUE TO RECENT
RAINS DOES NOT JUSTIFY A WARNING AT THIS TIME FOR THE WEEKEND.
HOWEVER...WITH EVEN LOWER HUMIDITIES AND VERY STRONG WINDS
EXPECTED SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY...HIGH FIRE DANGER WILL BE
POSSIBLE DESPITE THE CURRENT FUEL STATUS. A FIRE WEATHER WATCH MAY
BE NEEDED FOR THE SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY TIME FRAME...WHICH WOULD
BE ISSUED SATURDAY AFTERNOON IF ONE IS DEEMED NECESSARY.

NOTE TO USERS: DUE TO THE ONGOING FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS...THE
FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST WILL BE ISSUED EACH AFTERNOON OVER
THE WEEKEND. HOWEVER...IF A FIRE WEATHER WATCH OR RED FLAG WARNING
IS ISSUED OVER THE WEEKEND...THEN NWS OXNARD WILL MOVE TO FULL
FIRE WEATHER OPERATIONS UNTIL THE FIRE WEATHER EVENT HAS ENDED.
