LOS ANGELES (AP) - The National Weather Service is issuing warnings in many parts of Southern California, where days of strong winds and, dry conditions and sky-high wildfire risk are expected.
Forecasters say red flag warnings are in effect in parts of the region from Thursday until Saturday afternoon as high pressure will generate powerful, gusty northeast winds.
Humidity is expected to fall as low as single digits Friday afternoon.
Red flag warnings will affect parts of Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, San Diego and Riverside counties.
The Los Angeles Fire Department said in a statement it will pre-deploy firefighting resources to brush-heavy neighborhoods starting Wednesday night.
Wind gusts of up to 65 mph are possible in San Diego, with the strongest winds along the lower coastal slopes of the mountains and inland valleys.
