202 PM PDT Fri Oct 20 2017

...Critical Fire Weather Conditions likely Saturday through
Tuesday for portions of Southwest California due to gusty
north to northeast winds...low humidities...and hot
temperatures...

.Gusty northwest to north winds will continue across much of
Southwest California this afternoon into tonight following the
passage of an upper level trough. While there will be elevated
fire danger due to these strong winds, humidities are not
expected to be sufficiently low to reach critical conditions.
However, by early Saturday morning, gusty northerly winds combined
with lowering humidities will likely bring critical fire weather
conditions to the mountains...especially across the Santa Ynez
range and Interstate 5 corridor.

As the flow turns more northeast Sunday through Tuesday, there
will be a significant warming and drying trend across all of
Southwest California, with the potential for critical fire
weather conditions extending into the valleys and coastal areas
of Los Angeles and Ventura counties. The most critical fire
weather conditions are expected Monday through Tuesday, when
there will be a combination of Santa Ana winds gusting to between
40 and 50 mph, record breaking triple digit heat, humidities
lowering into the single digits, and very dry fuels. In addition,
very warm and dry conditions during the overnight hours in the
mountains, foothills, and wind prone areas will add to this fire
weather threat during this long duration of dangerous fire weather
conditions. 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.

  rising into the lower 90s Sunday through Tuesday. Very warm

County coast and valleys and the Santa Barbara County south coast

.Expect gusty west to northwest winds this evening, then winds
will turn northerly tonight as high pressure builds to the north
of the state. On Saturday winds will become more offshore and a
traditional Santa Ana pattern develops over eastern Ventura and
western Los Angeles Counties this weekend.

Early next week, strong high pressure and a weak to moderate
Santa Ana wind event will produce record setting hot temperatures
across southwest California. The hottest days are expected to be
Monday and Tuesday where highs near or in excess of 100 degrees
are expected across much of the coast and valley region of Los
Angeles and Ventura counties, including the Santa Monica
Mountains, as well as the south coast of Santa Barbara County.
Overnight temperatures will also be quite warm, especially in the

* TEMPERATURES...100-106 degrees on Monday and Tuesday.
  Overnight lows in the upper 60s and 70s. Isolated lower 80s
  possible in the foothills and mountains.

* IMPACTS...Gusty winds will make driving difficult, especially
  for high profile vehicles. This includes Interstate 5 and
  Highways 14 and 126. 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.

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.

To reduce risk during outdoor work the occupational safety and
health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by
heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke
is an emergency - call 911.

...WIND ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 11 PM PDT THIS EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Phoenix has issued a Blowing Dust
Advisory, which is in effect until 6 PM PDT this evening.

* AFFECTED AREA...Imperial County.

* TIMING...Now through Friday evening.

* WINDS...Sustained 25-35 mph with gusts 35-45 mph.

* VISIBILITY...Below 1 mile.

* Impacts...Motorists traveling on Interstate 8, Highway 111,
  and Highway 78 will encounter difficult handling conditions
  due to very strong winds. There may also be reduced visibility
  at times due to blowing dust which will make conditions even
  more hazardous.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Wind Advisory means that sustained wind speeds of between
30 and 40 mph are expected, or wind gusts of between 40 and
58 mph. Winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially
for high profile vehicles. In addition, strong winds over desert
areas could result in briefly lowered visibilities to well under
a mile at times in blowing dust or blowing sand. Use extra
caution.

Be ready for a sudden drop in visibility. If you encounter
blowing dust or blowing sand on the roadway or see it
approaching, pull off the road as far as possible and put your
vehicle in park. Turn the lights all the way off and keep your
foot off the brake pedal.

Remember, pull aside, stay alive.

Excessive Heat Watch


URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE

...Gusty winds to impact portion of the region this evening and
into Saturday...

...Excessive Heat Watch in effect for Los Angeles and Ventura
County coast and valleys and the Santa Barbara County south coast
Monday and Tuesday...

.Expect gusty west to northwest winds this evening, then winds
will turn northerly tonight as high pressure builds to the north
of the state. On Saturday winds will become more offshore and a
traditional Santa Ana pattern develops over eastern Ventura and
western Los Angeles Counties this weekend.

Early next week, strong high pressure and a weak to moderate
Santa Ana wind event will produce record setting hot temperatures
across southwest California. The hottest days are expected to be
Monday and Tuesday where highs near or in excess of 100 degrees
are expected across much of the coast and valley region of Los
Angeles and Ventura counties, including the Santa Monica
Mountains, as well as the south coast of Santa Barbara County.
Overnight temperatures will also be quite warm, especially in the
foothills and Santa Monica Mountains where temperatures will only
drop to the mid to upper 70s and possibly lower 80s.

  Overnight lows in the upper 60s and 70s. Isolated lower 80s
  possible in the foothills and mountains.

* 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.

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.

To reduce risk during outdoor work the occupational safety and
health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by
heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke
is an emergency - call 911.

...Critical Fire Weather Conditions likely Saturday through
Tuesday for portions of Southwest California due to gusty
north to northeast winds...low humidities...and hot
temperatures...

.Gusty northwest to north winds will continue across much of
Southwest California this afternoon into tonight following the
passage of an upper level trough. While there will be elevated
fire danger due to these strong winds, humidities are not
expected to be sufficiently low to reach critical conditions.
However, by early Saturday morning, gusty northerly winds combined
with lowering humidities will likely bring critical fire weather
conditions to the mountains...especially across the Santa Ynez
range and Interstate 5 corridor.

As the flow turns more northeast Sunday through Tuesday, there
will be a significant warming and drying trend across all of
Southwest California, with the potential for critical fire
weather conditions extending into the valleys and coastal areas
of Los Angeles and Ventura counties. The most critical fire
weather conditions are expected Monday through Tuesday, when
there will be a combination of Santa Ana winds gusting to between
40 and 50 mph, record breaking triple digit heat, humidities
lowering into the single digits, and very dry fuels. In addition,
very warm and dry conditions during the overnight hours in the
mountains, foothills, and wind prone areas will add to this fire
weather threat during this long duration of dangerous fire weather
conditions. If fire ignition occurs, there will be the potential
for very rapid spread of wildfire with long range spotting and
