     Ventura County will be experiencing a significant Santa Ana wind event beginning late Wednesday night through Friday evening.

   The peak period will be Thursday morning through Thursday night with winds continuing into Friday and a Red Flag Warning will be in effect from 3 AM Thursday through 6 PM Friday.

   Wind gusts could range between 55 miles per hour in the coastal and valley areas and 70 miles an hour in the mountains.

   Humidity will drop into single digits.

     Ventura County emergency officials and Southern California Edison have produced a map that shows what areas of the county might have power shut off in the event that the upcoming Santa Ana wind event reaches a point where a decision is made to do that.
