SYNOP:
Red Flag Warning remains in effect through Friday evening with another Red Flag Warning possible for the Sunday through Monday time period. Strong Santa Ana winds at times with High Wind Warning through Friday 6 pm for the mountains, foothills, and valleys. Very dry conditions likely to continue through at least the middle of next week with minimums as low as 5% away from the coast at times.

A couple of troughs from Canada will drop into the Desert Southwest through this weekend. Strong high pressure off the California Coast will move inland early next week and then weaken as the week wears on.

• Northeast winds of 20 to 40 mph with gusts to 60 mph will surface across the mountains and below the canyons and passes of Southern California this morning. These winds will decrease this afternoon and evening and become light by Saturday morning.

• Northeast winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 50 mph will surface across the mountains and below the canyons and passes of Southern California once again Sunday morning through Tuesday morning. Winds will decrease Tuesday afternoon, but local northeast winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 40 mph will continue through Wednesday afternoon. Winds will be light across the region late next week.

• Widespread single digit humidity along with very poor humidity recovery at night will continue through the end of next week.

• Temperatures will be near normal across the valleys and 5 to 10 degrees below normal across the mountains and deserts through the end of next week. Maximum temperatures will be in the upper 40s and 50s across the mountains and 70s to low 80s in the valleys.

NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)

SPECIAL NOTES:

DAILY FUELS/FIRE POTENTIAL:
• The potential for large fire will be high over most of Southern California today and again Sunday through Tuesday due to strong offshore winds along with widespread single digit minimum humidity.

• Rapid rates of spread and long range spotting will be likely on new ignitions that occur in windy locations as was seen on the Hill and Woolsey Fires in Ventura County.

• Fires that get passed their initial attack phase will be able to burn actively at night due to poor humidity recovery.

• Fuels will continue to be extremely dry through the end of next week.

• Expect moderate initial attack activity across Southern California and light IA activity across Central California through the forecast period.

SANTA ANA WILDFIRE THREAT INDEX: TODAY: MODERATE

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.

RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM PST FRIDAY FOR GUSTY SANTA
ANA WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY FOR MOST OF LOS ANGELES AND
VENTURA COUNTIES…

…EXTENDED PERIOD OF ELEVATED TO LOCALLY CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER
CONDITIONS THROUGH NEXT WEEK…

…OFFSHORE WINDS AND RED FLAG CONDITIONS POSSIBLE AGAIN SUNDAY
THROUGH TUESDAY…

.DISCUSSION…
An extended period of elevated to critical fire weather conditions is expected through at least the end of next week. Widespread minimum humidities between 8 and 15 percent will persist today through most of next week, except for extremely low humidities between 1 and 8 percent on Friday and Saturday. Overnight recoveries will be poor in the mountains and windy areas. A moderate to strong Santa Ana wind event will continue to develop across the area
this afternoon and evening, peaking in strength Friday morning with wind gusts generally between 50 and 70 mph, with the winds slowly diminishing Friday afternoon and evening. Widespread Red Flag conditions will occur over most of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties this afternoon through Friday evening as a result, possibly lingering into Saturday
over the mountains. Elevated to briefly critical fire weather conditions are likely over Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties, especially in the mountains tonight into Friday when east wind gusts between
25 and 35 mph are expected.

After a lull on Saturday, another round of Santa Ana winds is expected to develop Sunday through Tuesday. At this time, this event looks to be weaker than the current event. However, very dry conditions will persist across the district. So, there is a good chance of wide spread critical fire weather conditions across Ventura and Los Angeles counties
Sunday through Tuesday.
