  • ...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY
    EVENING FOR GUSTY OFFSHORE WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY OVER

    ...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FROM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH
    TUESDAY EVENING FOR GUSTY OFFSHORE WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY
    OVER THE SANTA BARBARA AND SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY MOUNTAINS AND
    THE FOOTHILLS OF THE CUYAMA VALLEY...
    .Offshore pressure trends have started this morning and the red
    flag warning remains on-track. This is a high confidence forecast
    as strong Santa Ana winds will kick in over the mountains late
    this evening or shortly after midnight, then reach the coast prior
    to sunrise Monday morning. A very dry airmass over the Great Basin
    will rapidly push downslope into western valleys and coastal
    sections of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties late tonight. For
    example, a 95 percent humidity at Camarillo at 1am Monday drops
    to 8 percent by 5am! Although recent rainfall has wet fuels, wind
    gusts of 45 to 65 mph by Monday morning will quickly dry out fuels
    across Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. Widespread minimum
    humidities between 4 and 12 percent are likely Monday and Tuesday
    with poor overnight recoveries. Offshore winds will decrease
    Monday afternoon, but another surge of wind regenerates Monday
    night into Tuesday morning. There is a chance that critical
    conditions persist through Wednesday in the mountains and some
    valleys.
    In addition, have added the mountains of Santa Barbara and San
    Luis Obispo Counties as well as the foothills of the Cuyama
    Valley to a fire weather watch from Monday morning through Tuesday
    evening. These areas will not see winds as strong and mainly in
    the 15-25 mph range, but single digit humidities and no
    significant rainfall in recent days will create critical fire
    weather conditions.
    ...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FROM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH
    TUESDAY EVENING FOR WIND AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY FOR THE SANTA
    BARBARA AND SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY MOUNTAINS AND THE FOOTHILLS OF
    THE CUYAMA VALLEY...
