We have a wild week of weather ahead as temperatures drop Monday before skyrocketing back up Tuesday and by Thursday - there's even chances of rain!
Along with the cooler temperatures Monday comes some strong wind gusts causing a small craft advisory for our outer waters and parts of our inner waters in the Santa Barbara County area.
There's also chances of Santa Ana winds late Monday through Wednesday.
Santa Ana winds are particularly dangerous wind events because they are strong, hot, dust bearing winds.
Our fire weather concerns will be elevated on Tuesday especially, because of these winds mixing with our hotter temperatures.
Elevated to brief critical fire danger is expected over the LA/Ventura county mountains and valleys late Mon night through early Wed due to hot and dry conditions with gusty N-NE winds. Use extreme caution with potential fire ignition sources. #SoCal #CAwx #LAheat pic.twitter.com/7i40rVuhiR— NWS Los Angeles (@NWSLosAngeles) September 22, 2019
Things will start to cool off Wednesday but then enters our chances of rain.
Currently, the National Weather Service estimates a 20-40% chance of rain Thursday through Saturday.
Have a great week!
