Red Flag Warning

URGENT - FIRE WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA
1010 AM PDT Sun Oct 25 2020

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM LATE TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY
AFTERNOON FOR STRONG NORTHEAST WINDS AND VERY LOW RELATIVE
HUMIDITY FOR ALL OF LOS ANGELES AND VENTURA COUNTIES EXCEPT FOR
THE ANTELOPE VALLEY...

.Moderate to strong Santa Ana winds are expected to develop
across most of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties late tonight
through Tuesday, likely the strongest Santa Ana event we have
seen so far this season. The strongest winds are expected late
tonight through Monday evening, when damaging gusts of 60 to 80
mph can be expected in the mountains, gusts of 50 to 60 mph in the
wind prone valleys, and gusts of 35 to 50 mph from the Ventura
coast to Malibu and the Hollywood Hills. The downslope winds will
bring rapid drying, with widespread single digit humidities by
late Monday morning, and continuing through Tuesday. In general,
the offshore winds are expected to diminish slightly later Monday
night and Tuesday, but there is some uncertainty in how much the
winds will decrease during this time period.

The moderate to strong Santa Ana winds coupled with very low
humidities and very dry fuels will likely bring widespread
critical Red Flag fire weather conditions across Los Angeles and
Ventura counties late tonight through Tuesday, with the most
critical fire weather conditions we have seen in Southern
California since October 2019.  New fire ignitions will have the
potential for very rapid fire growth, extreme fire behavior, and
long range spotting, resulting in a significant threat to life
and property.

1010 AM PDT Sun Oct 25 2020

...RED FLAG WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 5 AM MONDAY TO 6 PM
PDT TUESDAY FOR GUSTY NORTH TO NORTHEAST WINDS AND VERY LOW
RELATIVE HUMIDITY FOR THE VENTURA COUNTY COAST AND MALIBU TO
HOLLYWOOD HILLS...

* Winds...North to northeast 20 to 35 mph with gusts 35 to to 50
  mph. Strongest winds from Ventura to Malibu and the Hollywood
  Hills Monday morning into mid afternoon Monday. Winds shifting
  to onshore across the Ventura coast late Monday afternoon and
  evening, with offshore winds redeveloping later Monday night
  into Tuesday morning across the LA/Ventura coast, with gusts
  generally 25 to 35 mph.

* Relative Humidity...Lowering rapidly to 15 to 25 percent Monday
  morning, then widespread single digit humidities by late Monday
  morning through Tuesday. Humidities potentially falling as low
  as 3 to 5 percent, especially Los Angeles county.

* Impacts...If fire ignition occurs, conditions will be
  favorable for very rapid fire spread, long range spotting, and
  extreme fire behavior which would threaten life and property.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions
will likely occur. A combination of strong winds...very low
relative humidity...and critically dry fuels can contribute to
extreme fire behavior with very rapid fire spread. Use extreme
caution with potential fire ignition sources. Residents are urged
to assemble their emergency supply kit and know your evacuation
route.
