levels will initially remain well above critical levels. By
Thursday afternoon, humidity levels are expected to fall into the
teens coinciding with the gusty northeast winds. The peak of the
Santa Ana wind event is expected Thursday evening through Friday
morning when wind gusts up to 60 mph will be possible across the
mountains, along with gusts of 35 to 50 mph across wind favored
coastal and valley areas. Offshore winds will begin to slowly
diminish Friday afternoon into evening, however humidity levels
will continue to lower into the upper single digits and lower
teens. Offshore winds are expected to be weaker Saturday into
Sunday, however lingering very dry conditions will continue to
bring elevated to brief critical fire weather conditions to the
region.
