Red flag warning, fire weather watch, frost advisory

A red flag warning has been issued for the San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara County mountains through Sunday. A fire weather watch remains in effect for the Central Coast as well due to the critical fire weather conditions. Temperatures will be above normal and into the 80's and 90's for daytime highs. The strongest winds are expected tonight and early Saturday. Peak wind gusts will range between 30-40 miles an hour this evening with chaotic and gusty winds Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Humidity levels will be low, into the single digits and teens. There will be a poor recovery overnight for humidity levels for all areas except at the beach. Heat, low humidity levels, dry fuels, and strong winds create critical fire weather conditions. The potential impacts are extreme fire danger, explosive fire growth if a fire starts and downed trees and power lines. Dangerous rip currents will be prevalent near shore. Seas are expected to be steep and rough. A frost advisory has been issued for the interior portions of San Luis Obispo County as overnight lows are expected to dip into the 30's tonight into Saturday and possibly into Sunday.
