  • Red Flag Warning for San Luis Obispo County Central Coast County, California
  • Red Flag Warning issued August 06 at 3:34PM PDT until August 07 at 10:00AM PDT by NWS
  • Effective: Monday, August 6, 2018 at 3:34 p.m.
  • Expires: Tuesday, August 7, 2018 at 10 a.m.
  • ...RED FLAG WARNING FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHWEST CALIFORNIA THROUGH
    TUESDAY...
    .A very warm and dry air mass under high pressure aloft has filled
    in the mountains and valley areas, and will change little through
    Tuesday. Gusty north winds will peak through Monday night over
    the favored areas, with gusts in the 30 to 50 mph range. This will
    likely result in critical fire weather conditions where the winds
    are the strongest, including most mountain areas, southern Santa
    Barbara County, and possibly the Santa Clarita Valley. Rapid fire
    spread should be expected if fire ignition occurs. The north winds
    will weaken on Tuesday but Los Angeles County will see a quick
    wind reversal to onshore by Tuesday afternoon. These onshore winds
    should strengthen Wednesday and Thursday, which means that the
    current Red Flag Warning for the Los Angeles County mountains may
    need to be extended through Wednesday or Thursday.
