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!

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Take extra precautions Monday through Tuesday if you work or
spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous
activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and
symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight
and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of
water.

Never, ever, leave people or pets in enclosed vehicles, even for
a short period of time.

To reduce risk during outdoor work the occupational safety and
health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat
should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an
emergency - call 911.

When driving, use extra caution. Be prepared for sudden gusty
cross winds.
