Fire weather conditions will be a concern Wednesday night into Thursday especially across the mountains of Santa Barbara county.
The wind event developing is a true Santa Ana wind with widespread strong offshore winds across parts of the Central Coast and Southern California.
Breezy NW winds of today and tomorrow turn more northerly and northeasterly Wednesday night into Thursday.
Santa Barbara and Los Angeles counties will see the strongest winds. Wind gusts in the 40 to 50 mph range can be expected across the interstate 5 corridor in the Los Angeles county mountains as well as the Santa Ynez range.
The Santa Barbara South Coast will also see some strong wind potential.
Humidities will fall dramatically and the dryness of the air means any fire that starts could spread quickly with the stronger winds, the recent rains were not enough to significantly reduce fire danger in Southern Santa Barbara county.
