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

...RED FLAG WARNINGS IN EFFECT THROUGH MONDAY AFTERNOON FOR GUSTY
NORTHEAST WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS AND
VALLEYS  OF VENTURA AND LOS ANGELES COUNTIES...

...ELEVATED FIRE DANGER FOR REMAINING AREAS THROUGH AT LEAST
MONDAY...

AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF CRITICAL RED FLAG CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE
ACROSS MUCH OF LOS ANGELES AND VENTURA COUNTIES THROUGH
MONDAY...WITH ELEVATED FIRE DANGER ACROSS REMAINING AREAS. WEAK
SANTA ANA WINDS HAVE BROUGHT SIGNIFICANT WARMING AND DRYING TODAY TO
THE REGION...WITH MANY INLAND AREAS CLIMBING WELL INTO THE 90S.

AS SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OVER THE GREAT BASIN...THE SANTA ANA
WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO INCREASE LATE TONIGHT AND ESPECIALLY SUNDAY
WHEN THE WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO SPREAD ALL THE WAY TO THE COAST FROM
VENTURA TO MALIBU. DURING THE PEAK OF THE EVENT...THE MOUNTAINS OF
LOS ANGELES AND VENTURA COUNTIES WILL GENERALLY SEE WIND GUSTS IN
THE 45 TO 55 MPH RANGE WHILE COASTAL AND VALLEY AREAS WILL HAVE
GUSTS IN THE 35 TO 50 MPH RANGE. THESE GUSTY SANTA ANA WINDS ARE
EXPECTED TO BRING WIDESPREAD TRIPLE DIGIT TEMPERATURES ACROSS
COASTAL AND VALLEY LOCATIONS ALONG WITH WIDESPREAD SINGLE DIGIT
HUMIDITIES. THE SAN GABRIEL VALLEY HAS BEEN ADDED TO  THE RED FLAG
WARNING DUE TO THE CONCERN OF GUSTY OFFSHORE WINDS IMPACTING THE
FOOTHILLS. THE ANTICIPATED DANGEROUS FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ACROSS
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA COMBINED WITH THE EXCEPTIONALLY DRY FUELS WILL
RESULT IN SUNDAY BEING THE MOST CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER DAY OF THIS
OFFSHORE WIND EVENT. WITH ANY FIRE IGNITIONS...THERE WILL BE THE
POTENTIAL FOR VERY RAPID FIRE SPREAD ALONG WITH EXTREME FIRE
BEHAVIOR. THERE WILL ALSO BE POOR HUMIDITY RECOVERIES AND VERY WARM
TEMPERATURES AT NIGHT ACROSS THE FOOTHILLS AND WIND PRONE LOCATIONS.

WITH A CLOSED LOW PRESSURE FORMING OVER BAJA ON MONDAY...THIS WILL
MAINTAIN UPPER LEVEL WIND SUPPORT FOR CONTINUED GUSTY OFFSHORE WINDS
ACROSS  THE REGION. ON MONDAY...THE OFFSHORE WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO
BE SLIGHTLY WEAKER THAN SUNDAY ACROSS LOS ANGELES AND VENTURA
COUNTIES WITH MORE OF AN EASTERLY WIND COMPONENT. HOT AND VERY DRY
CONDITIONS WITH THESE GUSTY OFFSHORE WINDS WILL MAINTAIN THE RED
FLAG WARNINGS THROUGH MONDAY.

THERE WILL LIKELY BE SOME HUMIDITY INCREASE ON TUESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY...ESPECIALLY AT THE MID LEVELS OF THE ATMOSPHERE AS THE
UPPER LOW DRAWS CLOSER TO THE REGION.

...DISCUSSION FROM MONTEREY...

STRONG HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD JUST OFF THE COAST
INTO SUNDAY. THIS WILL ALLOW FOR HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS THROUGH THE
WEEKEND AND INTO EARLY WEEK. A THERMALLY INDUCED SURFACE LOW WILL
STRENGTHEN OVER LAND DURING THE DAY AND OVER THE NEARSHORE WATERS AT
NIGHT. AS A RESULT...EXPECT NORTHEAST OFFSHORE WINDS TO DEVELOP
OVERNIGHT. LOCALLY STRONG AND GUSTY WINDS ARE FORECAST ACROSS THE
NORTH AND EAST BAY MOUNTAINS...WITH THE STRONGEST CONDITIONS OVER
THE HIGHER RIDGES AND PEAKS IN NORTHERN SONOMA COUNTY AND NORTHERN
NAPA COUNTIES. STRONG OFFSHORE DRAINAGE WINDS ARE POSSIBLE AROUND
SUNRISE. WINDS ARE FORECAST TO DIMINISH SUNDAY AFTERNOON.

NOTE : ALL WINDS ARE 20-FOOT WINDS UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED.
THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY STRONG, GUSTY AND ERRATIC WINDS.
