...fire weather watch in effect from late sunday night through tuesday afternoon for wind and low relative humidity for all of los angeles and ventura counties except for the antelope valley...
.winds have diminished across the area, but it will remain gusty in the mountains and foothills, with isolated gusts up to 35 mph through today. The air mass will remain extremely dry with minimum humidities in the single digits to lower teens across most valleys and mountains during this time. Poor overnight recoveries of only 10-20 percent will be likely for windier areas of the fire district. Elevated to brief critical fire weather conditions will persist through sunday due to continued dry air and locally gusty offshore winds. Another santa ana wind event is expected to begin late sunday night and continue through at least tuesday. Northeast wind gusts will likely increase to near 60 mph, or possibly higher, by monday morning. There is some uncertainty in humidities, as an upper level system moving over the area at that time may bring slight increases in humidity at lower levels. However, drying conditions are expected through the day monday into tuesday with humidities again dropping to teens and single digits.
