Santa Ana winds to return to Southern California

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Southern California is in for a blustery weekend with elevated fire risk and hazards for some drivers.

The National Weather Service says high pressure building over the Great Basin Friday will bring Santa Ana winds back to the region through Sunday.

Depending on location, northeast winds could range between 20 mph and 35 mph, with gusts from 45 mph to 55 mph, and bursts up to 65 mph on some ridges. Lulls are expected in late afternoon and evening hours.

Humidity levels are predicted to fall to 15 percent on Saturday and then into single digits. The weather service says a fire weather watch will be in effect in many areas from Saturday afternoon through Sunday afternoon.

Forecasters note that the winds could make it difficult to drive high-profile vehicles.
