SYNOP: (NWS SAN DIEGO)
…RED FLAG WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 11 PM THIS EVENING TO
6 PM PDT THURSDAY FOR STRONG GUSTY WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY FOR THE
MOUNTAINS…VALLEYS…AND INLAND ORANGE COUNTY…

.Onshore flow will spread cooling and higher coastal humidity into the valleys today. Strong offshore flow is expected to develop tonight into Wednesday and continue into Thursday with periods of strong and gust east to northeast winds in the mountains, valleys, and inland Orange County. The winds combined with very low humidity will bring an extended period of critical fire weather conditions for late tonight into Thursday afternoon. Continued very dry on Friday and Saturday with weaker east to northeast winds continuing elevated to near critical fire weather conditions. Weak onshore flow for Sunday and Monday will bring a slow recovery in humidity.

Key Points:
· Wind Onset……Late tonight/early Wednesday morning before sunrise

· Wind Duration…Midnight tonight – 1800 Thursday

· Timeframe of strongest winds… Wed morning/afternoon – LA, VTU, Cajon Pass … Wed afternoon/eve – OC, Inland Empire … Wed night/Thursday – San Diego County

· Strongest winds…30-40 mph, gusts 70+ mph…LA County, VTU, Cajon Pass 25-35 mph, gusts 60+ mph…OC, Inland Empire 25-35 mph, gusts 55 mph (mountains 75 mph)…San Diego Co.

· Lowest RH…widespread minimums 2-7% Wednesday and Thursday below 7,000 feet. No recovery Wednesday night

· It will be a “cold” Santa Ana wind event with temperatures in the 50s in the mountains to the 70s at lower elevations.

· Light winds, warmer temperatures this weekend with highs back in the 80s in the valleys. Daytime RH will continue to be low away from the coast.

· No rain next 2 weeks.

NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)
RED FLAG WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 5 PM PDT /5 PM MST/
THIS AFTERNOON TO 5 PM PDT /5 PM MST/ WEDNESDAY FOR STRONG WINDS
AND LOW RH

.DISCUSSION…Another round of gusty north winds and low humidity will bring critical fire conditions to the Colorado River Valley tonight and Wednesday, and a Red Flag Warning is in effect for that area. Much quieter weather is expected beginning Thursday the continuing through the weekend.

Freeze Warning in effect from midnight Wednesday – 10 am Thursday for Las Vegas Valley, and much of San Bernardino Countities
CONFIDENCE AND DETAILS
Colorado River Valley
HIGH Confidence
Dangerous boating conditions due to strong winds and significant wave activity.
Extreme fire behavior and rapid fire growth. Loose or unsecured objects may be blown away.

Details:
Tonight-Wednesday
LAKE MEAD/LAKE MOHAVE/LAKE HAVASU
North wind 25 to 35 gusts to 45 mph developing late Tuesday afternoon and persisting Tuesday night/Wednesday morning then gradually diminishing.
Clark/Southern Nye/San Bernardino County Deserts
First freeze of the year will bring the end to the growing season.
Sensitive plants le􀅌 outdoors will be killed.

Details:
Thursday Morning
First freeze of the season likely to impact:
Much of the Mojave Desert, including parts of Las Vegas Valley, and San Bernardino County

DAILY FUELS/FIRE POTENTIAL:
A critical fire environment will develop over the next few days due to very strong winds, exceptionally low relative humidity readings and critically dry fuels. Yesterday’s fire behavior at the Getty Fire included areas of near total consumption across the relatively-moist fuels of Brentwood and slopes often exposed to marine layer stratus. Most fuels are drier than the fuels in these beds and any new start during the wind event will exhibit extreme fire behavior including long range spotting and crown runs in the heavier fuels. Strong winds may lead to speed and directional shear Wednesday, which may limit the use of fixed wing aircraft during the peak of the wind event. Expect rapid rates of spread – even Wednesday night. Large fire potential will be very high the next few days and a high amount of resource demand and mobilization likely. Light upslope winds, and perhaps a gentle sea breeze, may lead to shifting flame fronts across ongoing incidents Friday. Expect less resource demand over the weekend.

SANTA ANA WILDFIRE THREAT INDEX: TODAY: GREY – NO RATING
A strong offshore wind event will begin late tonight. Wind gusts in excess of 75 mph expected Wednesday along with RH of 2-7%. This will be a dangerous offshore wind event with extreme fire behavior with any new start. Winds will slowly decrease Thursday afternoon

NO RATING: Sundowner winds are either not expected, or will not contribute to significant fire activity.

MARGINAL: Upon ignition, fires may grow rapidly.

MODERATE: Upon ignition, fires will grow rapidly and will be difficult to control.

HIGH: Upon ignition, fires will grow very rapidly, will burn intensely, and will be very difficult to control

EXTREME: Upon ignition, fires will have extreme growth, will burn very intensely, and will be uncontrollable.
