  • Excessive Heat Watch issued October 22 at 2:08AM PDT until October 24 at 8:00PM PDT by NWS
  • Effective: Monday, October 23, 2017 at 10 a.m.
  • Expires: Tuesday, October 24, 2017 at 8 p.m.
  • ...Excessive Heat Warning in effect for Los Angeles and Ventura
    County coast and valleys Monday and Tuesday...
    ...Excessive Heat Watch for the Santa Barbara County south coast
    Monday and Tuesday...
    ...Gusty northeast winds in many areas through Monday with
    potentially strong winds across mountains Monday night and
    Tuesday...
    .A Santa Ana wind event is expected to bring northeast winds
    across eastern Ventura and western Los Angeles Counties today
    and across the Central Coast through tonight. A stronger Santa
    Ana wind event could develop Monday night and Tuesday as another
    surge of air from the Great Basin combines with a tight pressure
    gradient over southwest California.
    Strong high pressure in combination with the winds will produce
    record setting high temperatures across southwest California. The
    hottest days are expected to be Monday and Tuesday when highs
    approach or exceed 100 degrees even within a mile of the ocean.
    People living in coastal areas without air conditioning should
    take precautions to avoid heat illness and heat stress. Low
    temperatures will remain in the 70s and possibly lower 80s where
    winds persist during the nighttime hours in Ventura and Los
    Angeles Counties. This is a very unusual late season heat wave
    and should not be taken lightly!
    ...EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM MONDAY MORNING
    THROUGH TUESDAY EVENING...
    * TEMPERATURES...90 to 100 degrees Monday and Tuesday afternoon.
    * IMPACTS...The very high temperatures could create a dangerous
    situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Temperatures
    inside vehicles, even if the windows are partially open, can
    quickly rise to life-threatening levels.
