URGENT - FIRE WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA
1031 AM PDT Sat Oct 21 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 AM PDT SUNDAY FOR THE SANTA BARBARA
COUNTY MOUNTAINS DUE TO GUSTY NORTH TO NORTHEAST WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITIES...

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM PDT TUESDAY FOR THE LOS ANGELES
AND VENTURA COUNTY MOUNTAINS AND SANTA CLARITA VALLEY DUE TO GUSTY
NORTHEAST WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITIES...

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 6 AM PDT SUNDAY UNTIL 6 PM PDT TUESDAY
FOR REMAINING COASTAL AND VALLEY AREAS OF LOS ANGELES AND VENTURA COUNTIES
DUE TO GUSTY NORTHEAST WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITIES...

.Gusty north to northeast winds will combine with lowering
humidities to bring critical fire weather conditions to the
mountains and Santa Clarita Valley today into tonight.

As the flow turns more northeast Sunday through Tuesday, there
will be a significant warming and drying trend across all of
Southwest California, with critical fire weather conditions likely
extending into the valley and coastal areas of Los Angeles and
Ventura counties. The most critical fire weather conditions are
expected Monday through Tuesday, when there will be a combination
of Santa Ana winds gusting to between 40 and 55 mph, record
breaking triple digit heat, humidities lowering into the single
digits, and very dry fuels. In addition, very warm and dry
conditions during the overnight hours in the mountains, foothills,
and wind prone areas will add to this fire weather threat during
this long duration of dangerous fire weather conditions. If fire
ignition occurs, there will be the potential for very rapid spread
of wildfire with long range spotting and extreme fire behavior
that could lead to a threat to life and property.
