Office: LOX WWUS86 KLOX 212100 RFWLOX URGENT - FIRE WEATHER MESSAGE National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 200 PM PDT Sat Jul 21 2018 ...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT LATE TUESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH THURSDAY MORNING FOR SANTA BARBARA COUNTY MOUNTAINS AND SOUTH COAST DUE TO GUSTY NORTHWEST TO NORTH WINDS, LOW HUMIDITIES, AND HOT TEMPERATURES... .A strong upper level ridge of high pressure will bring a long duration heat wave to the region from Monday through at least Thursday, with triple digit heat common across foothill and mountain locations. Meanwhile, a tightening northwest pressure gradient will generate several days of gusty Sundowner winds during the late afternoon through nighttime hours from Sunday through Wednesday. While the gusty sundowner winds will bring elevated fire weather concerns to southern Santa Barbara county on Sunday and Monday, rising temperatures and lowering humidities on Tuesday and Wednesday will bring the potential for critical fire weather conditions during this time period. During diminished wind periods, there is also the potential for large vertical plume growth across interior sections due to the hot and unstable conditions.
