Wind Advisory

URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA
244 PM PDT Sat Oct 21 2017

...Excessive Heat Warning in effect for Los Angeles and Ventura
County coast and valleys Monday and Tuesday...
...Excessive Heat Watch for the Santa Barbara County south coast
Monday and Tuesday...

...Gusty northeast winds in many areas through Monday with
potentially strong winds across mountains Monday night and
Tuesday...

.A Santa Ana wind event is expected to bring northeast winds
across eastern Ventura and western Los Angeles Counties through
Sunday and across the central coast through Sunday night. A
stronger Santa Ana wind event could develop Monday night and
Tuesday as another surge of air from the Great Basin combines with
a tight pressure gradient over southwest California.

Strong high pressure in combination with the winds will produce
record setting high temperatures across southwest California. The
hottest days are expected to be Monday and Tuesday when highs
approach or exceed 100 degrees even within a mile of the ocean.
People living in coastal areas without air conditioning should
take precautions to avoid heat illness and heat stress. Low
temperatures will remain in the 70s and possibly lower 80s where
winds persist during the nighttime hours in Ventura and Los
Angeles Counties. This is a very unusual late season heat wave and
should not be taken lightly!
