SOUTH COAST DUE TO GUSTY NORTH TO NORTHEAST WINDS AND LOW
RELATIVE HUMIDITY...

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FOR MUCH OF LOS ANGELES AND VENTURA
COUNTIES LATE SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY EVENING...

.DISCUSSION...After the passage of an upper level disturbance,
there will be increasing upper level wind support and cold air
advection that will bring strengthening north to northeast winds
across the mountains and adjacent coastal foothills of Santa
Barbara county (including the Thomas Fire) late tonight through
Saturday evening, with gusts of 30 to 40 mph being common. Due to
the stronger winds in the upper atmosphere, there is the potential
for locally stronger gusts across exposed ridgetops on Saturday.
The combination of these gusty winds with humidities generally
ranging between 10 to 20 percent will result in critical Red Flag
conditions across the Santa Barbara County mountains and adjacent
coastal foothills, mainly east of Santa Barbara. As a result,
there will be an increased threat of very rapid fire spread, long
range spotting, and extreme fire behavior across the warning area,
including portions of the Thomas Fire incident.

For the remainder of Ventura and Los Angeles Counties, the flow
is expected to shift to the northeast by Saturday evening, with a
threat of increased Santa Ana winds and low humidities late
Saturday night into Sunday when gusts between 35 and 55 mph will
be likely. A Red Flag Warning is in effect for late Saturday night
through Sunday evening for much of Los Angeles and Ventura

...GUSTY SANTA ANA WINDS WILL BRING CHOPPY SEAS TO THE INNER
WATERS TONIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY...

...HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS POSSIBLE FOR AVALON AND TWO HARBORS
TONIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY...

Gusty northeast winds and choppy seas will develop over the
coastal waters southeast of Point Conception late tonight and
continue through Sunday. Wind gusts up to 25 knots are expected
during the period. Isolated gusts up to 30 knots are possible as
well.

These winds will especially affect nearshore areas from Ventura
to Santa Monica, including Santa Cruz and Anacapa Islands. Gusty
northeast winds will also move through the San Pedro Channel and
affect most of the unprotected front side of Santa Catalina
Island, including Avalon and Two Harbors.

The winds will create steep, choppy wind waves, with northeast
short period swell building up to 5 feet. The northeast swell and
wind waves will likely affect Avalon and Two Harbors, with the
worst conditions expected late tonight night and Sunday morning.

This is a potentially hazardous situation for Avalon and Two
Harbors. Improperly anchored or moored vessels may become loose
and damaged, and may cause damage to other vessels in the
vicinity. Mariners who normally anchor in these harbors are urged
to move their vessels to the south side of Santa Catalina Island
before the hazardous conditions develop late tonight.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for the western two thirds of
Utah and southwest Wyoming.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A weakening storm system will impact mainly northern and western
Utah, along with southwest Wyoming today. This storm will bring
snow to the northern portion of the outlook. Accumulating snows
in the mountains are not expected to be heavy at this time.
Adjacent valley locations will see light accumulations through
early this evening.

The strong valley inversions of the past several days should
weaken or even dissipate as this storm system passes through the
outlook area. Air quality across the northern urban areas will
improve as a result of this passing storm system.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

The next potential storm to impact the outlook area will arrive
on Wednesday. This storm could generate widespread snow and bring
very cold temperatures for Wednesday and Thursday. Precipitation
will end by Friday, though cold temperatures will linger across
the entire outlook area.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather spotters are encouraged to report significant weather
conditions according to standard operating procedures.
