Wildfire Danger Continues in Southern California

High pressure building into the Western U.S. will create strong offshore winds in southern California. Temperatures in this region are unseasonably hot, and conditions are dry. The combination of these strong winds and dry conditions will bring fire danger to portions of southern California. Red Flag Warnings are in effect here. Any new fires in this region could quickly grow out of control. Read More >

A Red Flag Warning is in effect for the Kern County mountains through Tuesday afternoon. A combination of low minimum relative humidity values and breezy winds will create critical fire weather conditions. Any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly. Continue to monitor the forecast for the latest information.
