Gusty Winds Thursday And Friday

Wednesday November 7, 2018

     The National Weather Service says a Red Flag Warning has been issued for Thursday and Friday as Ventura County experiences another round a gusty northeast (Santa Ana) winds.

    Here is what they are saying...

     "Gusty Santa Ana winds are expected across Ventura and Los Angeles counties Thursday and Friday.

       Northeast winds, gusting to between 50and 70 mph, are expected during the Friday peak.

       With the winds, warm conditions, very low relative humidity, and very dry vegetation, these weather conditions can lead to extreme fire behavior and growth if a fire starts.

       Use extra caution with potential fire sources! While the winds should weaken some Friday night into Saturday, they could strengthen again Sunday and Monday.

       There is a chance that the Red Flag Warning could persist through Monday."
