...Gusty northeast winds in many areas through Monday with
potentially strong winds across mountains Monday night and
.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!
