    .A moderate to strong Santa Ana wind event is forecast from late
    tonight through Monday, with offshore winds likely diminishing by
    early Tuesday. The strongest winds are likely to peak Monday
    morning, especially across western Los Angeles and eastern Ventura
    Counties. This surge of offshore winds will bring considerable
    drying to the region, with widespread humidities in the single
    digits and teens on Monday.
    There is high confidence in critical fire weather conditions for
    the mountains and most valleys in Los Angeles and Ventura
    counties, with Red Flag Warnings already posted. Areas currently
    under a Fire Weather Watch for tomorrow will likely be converted
    to Red Flag Warnings by the afternoon forecast. The combination
    of moderate to strong Santa Ana winds, very low humidities, warm
    temperatures, and very dry fuels will bring the increased risk
    for fire ignitions and large fire growth, including rapid fire
    spread and long range spotting. Offshore winds are expected to
    diminish rapidly Tuesday morning, with a transition to onshore
    winds by the afternoon with continued very low humidities and
    elevated fire danger.
    ...FIRE WEATHER WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM MONDAY MORNING
    THROUGH MONDAY EVENING FOR GUSTY EAST TO SOUTHEAST WINDS AND VERY
    LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY FOR INTERIOR SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY AND THE
    CUYAMA VALLEY...

    * Relative Humidity...Minimum values 5 to 12 percent.
    * Impacts...If fire ignition occurs, conditions are favorable
    for extreme fire behavior and rapid fire spread which would
    threaten life and property.
    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.
