Fire Weather Watch

URGENT - FIRE WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA
239 PM PST Sun Jan 17 2021

...FIRE WEATHER WATCHES IN EFFECT FOR MUCH OF SOUTHWEST CALIFORNIA
BETWEEN MONDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY MORNING WITH WIDESPREAD
DAMAGING WINDS LIKELY...

.A strong and widespread damaging wind event is expected to impact
a large portion of Southwest California between Monday night and
Wednesday morning, with the peak of the wind event Tuesday into
Tuesday night. Damaging wind gusts of 60 to 80 mph are expected
across portions of Los Angeles and Ventura counties, as well as
the higher elevations of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara
counties. While humidity levels are generally expected to be
greater than 15 percent, the strength of this wind event coupled
with the very dry fuels in place has warranted the issuance of
this Fire Weather Watch. There will be an increased risk of fire
ignitions due to downed trees and powerlines, along with a threat
of rapid fire spread and extreme fire behavior.

The National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard has issued a

AND MODERATELY LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY, which is in effect from
late Monday night through Tuesday evening.

* Winds...Northeast to east winds 30 to 50 mph with damaging gusts
  60 to 75 mph across valley and foothills areas, as well as the
  Santa Monicas, and 25 to 45 mph with damaging gusts of 50 to 65
  mph for coastal areas. Strongest winds on Tuesday, especially
  favoring the Ventura county Valleys, San Fernando Valley, Santa
  Clarita Valley, and coastal areas from Ventura to Malibu and
  the Hollywood Hills. Locally strong winds also expected to
  impact portions of the Los Angeles Basin.

* Relative Humidity...Mostly 15 to 30 percent.

* Impacts...If fire ignition occurs, conditions may be favorable
  for rapid fire spread, long range spotting, and extreme fire
  behavior which would threaten life and property. Due to the
  strength of the expected winds, there will be an increased
  potential for downed trees and powerlines, causing an increased
  threat of fire ignitions. In addition, there will be an
  increased risk for power outages.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Fire Weather Watch means that critical fire weather conditions
are forecast to occur. Listen for later forecasts and possible
Red Flag Warnings. This is the time to get set with assembling
