.DISCUSSION...
Northeast winds are expected to increase this evening and overnight
into Tuesday morning. While Mount Wilson is typically sheltered from
weaker Santa Ana winds, the stronger northeast winds are expected to
surface at the fire location...with even stronger winds over the
surrounding ridges. The highest wind speeds will likely be during
the late night to early morning hours, then beginning to subside
after around 1100 hours. Very low humidities will continue with teens
at night and single digits during the afternoon hours. High
temperatures will remain in the low 90`s Tuesday. Nighttime lows are
expected to increase a degree or two tonight and Tuesday night.

High temperatures and low humidities are expected to persist through
Wednesday, although easing slightly, under weakening offshore winds.
The winds will weaken more significantly Thursday through Saturday
under onshore influence, with a very gradual cooling and moistening
trend.
