...Discussion from Los Angeles/Oxnard...

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FOR THE LOS ANGELES AND VENTURA COUNTY
INTERIOR MOUNTAINS THROUGH AT LEAST WEDNESDAY EVENING FOR  GUSTY
WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY...

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FOR THE VENTURA COUNTY COASTS AND
VALLEYS, THE SANTA CLARITA VALLEY, AND THE SANTA MONICA MOUNTAINS
THROUGH TUESDAY EVENING FOR GUSTY WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY...

...WIDESPREAD ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS WITH VERY DRY AIR
THROUGH THURSDAY..

Little change is expected through Thursday. The  humidities will
remain incredibly dry nearly everywhere with  extremely poor
overnight recoveries. The extended period of offshore flow will
continue over Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, but will  be half as
strong as what occurred last week. Expect daily peak gusts in the
20 to 40 mph range...but some weakening is expected Wednesday into
Thursday. San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties will  continue
to see periods of north to east winds (gusts of 15 to 25  mph)
through Wednesday, including areas near the Thomas  Fire...resulting
in elevated to near critical fire weather  conditions. In addition,
the air mass will be fairly unstable above  the Thomas Fire through
Wednesday, resulting in a greater risk for  large fire plumes which
will locally enhance winds near the fire.

Some improvement is expected for Friday into Saturday as the winds
shift to more westerly, but more offshore flow is possible
beginning Saturday night or Sunday.


...Discussion from Monterey...

High pressure at the surface and aloft continues over the Great
Basin. Dry offshore flow will continue through Tuesday with poor RH
recoveries. No rain is expected through this weekend.

Note : All winds are 20-foot Winds Unless otherwise specified.
Thunderstorms imply strong, gusty and erratic winds.
