Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwestern California
National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA
944 AM PST Mon Dec 18 2017

...MODERATE TO STRONG NORTH WINDS WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON INTO THURSDAY...

...CRITICAL CONDITIONS WITH GUSTY OFFSHORE FLOW LIKELY THURSDAY AND FRIDAY...

.DISCUSSION...
The offshore flow from Sunday will continue to weaken into this
afternoon and turn weakly onshore, with minimum humidities generally
in the 10 to 25 percent range. Humidities will increase 10 to 20
percent as onshore flow strengthens Tuesday into early Wednesday,
especially over the interior sections where gusts in the 30 to 40 mph
range are expected. There is a chance for very light rain north of
Santa Barbara. By Wednesday afternoon and evening, confident that
the flow will shift to northerly and strengthen over the wind prone
areas including the Thomas Fire and the I-5 Corridor. Peak wind gusts
will likely exceed 40 mph, with gusts to around 60 mph possible
which would be similar to Saturday. Humidities will be above 15
percent, but a Fire Weather Watch will be considered due to the
extremely dry fuels and the strong winds. The winds will become
northeasterly Thursday and Friday and shift focus to Los Angeles and
Ventura Counties. Drying is likely during this time and Red Flag
conditions are possible. High uncertainty remains for the Christmas
weekend, but significant offshore flow and very dry conditions are
possible. Other than Wednesday, no rain chances for the next 7 to 10
days.
