    .Surface high pressure will build into the Great Basin late this
    weekend, bringing the potential for a moderate to locally strong
    Santa Ana wind event late Saturday evening through Sunday
    afternoon. While the Santa Ana winds will affect much of Los
    Angeles and Ventura counties, the strongest winds will be focused
    across the mountains and most valleys where there will be the
    greatest threat of rapid fire spread and large fire growth. The
    strongest winds are expected Saturday night into Sunday morning
    when gusts of 45 to 55 mph and locally higher are possible for the
    mountains with gusts of 35 to 45 mph possible in the valleys.
    Elevated fire weather conditions will be possible for coastal
    areas of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties over the weekend due to
    gusty Santa Ana winds and lowering humidities.
