Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Warning, Wind Advisory
Issued: 10:06 PM PDT Oct. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Wind Advisory remains in effect from midnight tonight to 2 PM
PDT Wednesday...
... Excessive heat warning remains in effect from 10 am Monday to
8 PM PDT Tuesday...

* temperatures... highs from 95 to 105. Overnight lows from 65 to
75 except around 80 in the hills.


* Winds... northeast 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph Monday and
20 to 30 mph with gust to 50 mph Tuesday before gradually
weakening into Wednesday. Strongest in Ventura County and from
Malibu to Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles County.

* Impacts... the very high temperatures create a dangerous
situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Temperatures
inside vehicles, even if the windows are partially open, can
quickly rise to life-threatening levels. Gusty winds could
create travel difficulty for high profile vehicles.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Take extra precautions Monday through Tuesday if you work or
spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous
activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and
symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight
and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of
water. Never, ever, leave people or pets in enclosed vehicles,
even for a short period of time.

When driving, use extra caution. Be prepared for sudden gusty
cross winds.






Fire Weather Warning
Issued: 4:02 PM PDT Oct. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Red flag warning now in effect until 6 PM PDT Wednesday for
gusty northeast winds... high temperatures... and low relative
humidity for the Ventura County coast and Los Angeles County
coast from Malibu to Hollywood Hills...

* winds... areas of northeast winds 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 25
mph through tonight from the Ventura County coast extending
eastward to Malibu and Hollywood Hills. Winds increasing to 20
to 35 mph with gusts to 40 to 50 mph Monday through Tuesday.
Strongest winds on Tuesday.

* Relative humidity... minimum values 8 to 18 percent today,
lowering to between 5 and 12 percent Monday through Wednesday.
Very poor humidity recoveries expected each night in the
foothills and wind prone areas.

* Temperatures... Max temperatures 84 to 94 degrees today, rising
to between 95 and 105 degrees Monday into Tuesday... then slight
cooling on Tuesday. Very warm overnight low temperatures in the
foothills and wind-prone areas... with lows in the 70s in
warmest locations.

* Impacts... if fire ignition occurs, there will be the potential
for very rapid spread of wildfire with long range spotting and
extreme fire behavior that could lead to a threat to life and
property.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are expected. A combination of gusty winds... very low relative
humidity... and hot temperatures can contribute to extreme fire
behavior. Use extreme caution when using potential fire ignition
sources.
