WILL INCREASE ACROSS LOS ANGELES AND VENTURA COUNTIES. THE
STRONGEST WINDS WILL BE FOCUSED ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS WHERE GUSTS

SATURDAY EVENING. COASTAL AND VALLEY AREAS CAN GENERALLY EXPECT
WIND GUSTS BETWEEN 45 AND 60 MPH ON SATURDAY. GUSTY SANTA ANA
WINDS WILL CONTINUE ON SUNDAY...WITH GUSTS GENERALLY RANGING
BETWEEN 35 AND 55 MPH ACROSS THE REGION. MINIMUM HUMIDITIES WILL
GENERALLY RANGE BETWEEN 10 AND 20 PERCENT THROUGH SATURDAY...
