...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FOR MUCH OF LOS ANGELES AND VENTURA
COUNTIES LATE TONIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY EVENING...
.DISCUSSION...
Strong upper level winds behind the passage of an upper level disturbance
combined with strengthening north-south pressure gradients caused
a significant increase in winds across the Santa Barbara county
mountains and south coast this morning, causing major impacts
on the Thomas Fire. Wind gusts of 35 to 50 mph have been common this morning
across these areas, with isolated gusts up to 65 mph being observed
in the Montecito Hills. While humidities have modified somewhat this
morning, the strong north to northeast winds through this evening
will continue to maintain dangerous Red Flag conditions for the Santa
Barbara county mountains and south coast. As a result of these strong winds,
there will be very rapid fire spread, long range spotting, and extreme
fire behavior observed at the Thomas Fire and any new fire ignitions.
In addition, there will be gusty north winds across the Ventura county
mountains today, especially near the Highway 33 and Interstate 5 corridors
which will impact the Ventura county portion of the Thomas Fire.
For the remainder of Ventura and Los Angeles Counties, the flow
is expected to shift to the northeast this evening, with increasing
Santa Ana winds overnight into Sunday when gusts between 35 and 55 mph will
be likely. A Red Flag Warning is in effect for late tonight
through Sunday evening for much of Los Angeles and Ventura
Counties.
