  • Fire Weather Watch for Santa Barbara County Central Coast County, California
  • Fire Weather Watch issued July 08 at 9:19AM PDT until July 09 at 3:00AM PDT by NWS
  • Effective: Saturday, July 8, 2017 at 9:19 a.m.
  • Expires: Sunday, July 9, 2017 at 3 a.m.
  • ...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE THIS AFTERNOON EVENING
    THROUGH TONIGHT FOR GUSTY SUNDOWNER WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE
    HUMIDITY FOR THE SANTA BARBARA COUNTY MOUNTAINS AND SOUTH COAST...
    .Sundowner conditions last night again generated a marginal red
    flag event with humidities dropping to 15% and winds gusting to
    between 40 and 45 mph but not for the required duration.
    Significant winds did not reach the coastal areas. A similar
    scenario appears to be shaping up for tonight though some factors
    point to a slight uptick in winds. More than likely conditions
    will be similar to last night, though perhaps a couple degrees
    cooler and a few percent higher humidities. Given the uncertainty
    will leave the Fire Weather Watch going for now and evaluate how
    the situation evolves through early afternoon before making the
    call on a red flag.
