Hot windy weather stokes Southern California fire warning

Recent massive brush fire.

Winds are predicted to blow up to 35 miles per hour with gusts up to 45 miles per hour.

Southern California's famed and scary Santa Ana winds from a massive high pressure system, low humidity and drought-driven dry vegetation will all combine to create a tense couple of days for firefighters anxious about the outbreak of any kind of large brush blaze.

Red flag warnings and high heat advisories remain in effect Sunday for portions of Southern California. Humidity is expected to hover between eight and 12 percent, the National Weather Service said. There is a real threat of unsafe fires, from a combination of strong winds and low humidity in the area. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening.

In Southern California, red flag warnings signaling critical fire weather are in effect until Monday afternoon across much of Los Angeles and Ventura counties and in mountainous areas to the east and south, the National Weather Service reported on Sunday.

Advisory strength winds could also be possible along coastal mountain slopes into adjacent inland valleys Sunday into Monday.

Forecasters said any fires that develop during the watch periods would likely spread rapidly.

According to the NWS, gradual cooling should begin Tuesday and Wednesday.
