...Gusty winds to impact portion of the region tonight into
Saturday...

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

.Expect gusty west to northwest winds this evening, then winds
will turn northerly tonight as high pressure builds to the north
of the state. On Saturday winds will become more offshore and a
traditional Santa Ana pattern develops over eastern Ventura and
western Los Angeles Counties this weekend.

Early next week, strong high pressure and a weak to moderate
Santa Ana wind event will produce record setting hot temperatures
across southwest California. The hottest days are expected to be
Monday and Tuesday where highs near or in excess of 100 degrees
are expected across much of the coast and valley region of Los
Angeles and Ventura counties, including the Santa Monica
Mountains, as well as the south coast of Santa Barbara County.
Overnight temperatures will also be quite warm, especially in the
foothills and Santa Monica Mountains where temperatures will only
drop to the mid to upper 70s and possibly lower 80s.

  inside vehicles, even if the windows are partially open, can
  quickly rise to life-threatening levels.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Take extra precautions Monday through Tuesday if you work or
spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous

heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke
is an emergency - call 911.

Fire Weather Watch

URGENT - FIRE WEATHER MESSAGE...CORRECTED
National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA
202 PM PDT Fri Oct 20 2017

...Critical Fire Weather Conditions likely Saturday through
Tuesday for portions of Southwest California due to gusty
north to northeast winds...low humidities...and hot
temperatures...

.Gusty northwest to north winds will continue across much of
Southwest California this afternoon into tonight following the
passage of an upper level trough. While there will be elevated
fire danger due to these strong winds, humidities are not
expected to be sufficiently low to reach critical conditions.
However, by early Saturday morning, gusty northerly winds combined
with lowering humidities will likely bring critical fire weather
conditions to the mountains...especially across the Santa Ynez
range and Interstate 5 corridor.

As the flow turns more northeast Sunday through Tuesday, there
will be a significant warming and drying trend across all of
Southwest California, with the potential for critical fire
weather conditions extending into the valleys 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 50 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.

  mph across the western portions of the Santa Monicas and
  eastern foothills of Ventura County.

* Relative Humidity...Minimum values 10 to 15 percent on Sunday,
  lowering to between 5 and 12 percent Monday through Tuesday.
  Very poor humidity recoveries expected each night in the
  foothills and wind prone areas.

  rising to between 95 and 105 degrees Monday into Tuesday. Very
  warm overnight low temperatures in the foothills and wind prone
  areas...remaining 75 to 80 degrees in warmest locations.

* Impacts...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.

are possible. Listen for later forecasts and possible Red Flag
