...ELEVATED TO BRIEF CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS THROUGH TUESDAY  
ACROSS THE INTERIOR VALLEYS...MOUNTAINS...AND DESERTS DUE TO STRONG  
ONSHORE WINDS WITH VERY WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS...  
 
THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE REGION WILL CONTINUE  
TO WEAKEN AND SHIFT EASTWARD THROUGH TUESDAY, LEADING TO STRONGER  
ONSHORE FLOW AND INCREASED MARINE LAYER INFLUENCE. THIS WILL LEAD TO  
A COOLING TREND ACROSS MUCH OF THE REGION, HOWEVER VERY WARM AND DRY  
CONDITIONS CONTINUE TO LINGER ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS, DESERTS, AND  
INTERIOR VALLEYS, WHERE TEMPERATURES IN THE 90S TO AROUND  
100 DEGREES AND HUMIDITIES BETWEEN 8 AND 25 PERCENT WILL BE COMMON.  
IN ADDITION, THERE WILL CONTINUE TO BE VERY POOR HUMIDITY RECOVERY  
TONIGHT ACROSS THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF THE SAN GABRIEL AND VENTURA  
COUNTY MOUNTAINS AS WELL AS THE EASTERN PORTIONS OF THE ANTELOPE  
VALLEY AND ADJACENT FOOTHILLS, WITH HUMIDITIES REMAINING IN THE  
15 TO 25 PERCENT RANGE. ONSHORE WINDS HAVE INCREASED IN COVERAGE AND  
SPEED TODAY ACROSS THE INTERIOR, WITH LITTLE CHANGE ON TUESDAY. WIND  
GUSTS BETWEEN 25 AND 45 MPH WILL BE COMMON ACROSS INTERIOR AREAS  
DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS, WITH ISOLATED GUSTS UP TO  
50 MPH IN THE FOOTHILLS OF THE ANTELOPE VALLEY. ADDING TO THE  
DURATION OF THE FIRE THREAT IN THE ANTELOPE VALLEY AND ADJACENT  
FOOTHILLS WILL BE ONSHORE WINDS CONTINUING TO GUST BETWEEN 25 AND  
35 MPH DURING THE OVERNIGHT AND MORNING HOURS.  
 
THE COMBINATION OF STRONG ONSHORE WINDS WITH VERY WARM AND DRY  
CONDITIONS AS WELL AS DRYING FUELS WILL LEAD TO ELEVATED TO BRIEF  
CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS THROUGH TUESDAY ACROSS THE INTERIOR  
VALLEYS, MOUNTAINS, AND DESERTS. THE GREATEST FIRE WEATHER RISK  
TODAY THROUGH TUESDAY WILL BE THE HIGHWAY 14 CORRIDOR THROUGH  
SOLEDAD CANYON AS WELL AS THE ANTELOPE VALLEY AND ADJACENT FOOTHILLS  
WHERE ONSHORE WINDS WILL BE STRONGEST. THESE HIGHER RISK AREAS WILL  
LIKELY SEE BRIEF CRITICAL RED FLAG CONDITIONS (3 TO 6 HOURS EACH  
DAY), BUT THE DURATION OF CRITICAL CONDITIONS IS NOT EXPECTED TO BE  
SUFFICIENTLY LONG FOR THE ISSUANCE OF A RED FLAG WARNING. HOWEVER,  
ANY FIRES THAT DEVELOP IN A STRONGER WIND CORRIDOR WILL HAVE THE  
POTENTIAL FOR RAPID FIRE SPREAD WITH SPOTTING. STRONG ONSHORE FLOW  
AND INCREASED MARINE LAYER INFLUENCE WILL MAINTAIN MILD CONDITIONS  
ACROSS THE DISTRICT WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY, WITH A CONTINUATION OF  
GUSTY ONSHORE WINDS ACROSS INTERIOR SECTIONS. A SLIGHT WARMING TREND  
IS THEN EXPECTED FRIDAY INTO THE WEEKEND.  
 
   
..DISCUSSION FROM MONTEREY
 
 
INLAND TEMPERATURES HAVE RETURNED TO NEAR SEASONAL AVERAGES AS  
ONSHORE FLOW INCREASES AND THE MARINE LAYER HAS DEEPENED TO ABOUT  
2000 FEET. EXPECT INLAND TEMPERATURES TO COOL A FEW ADDITIONAL  
DEGREES ON TUESDAY AND THEN WARM A BIT LATER IN THE WEEK. BUT  
OVERALL, NEAR NORMAL CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO PERSIST THROUGH THE  
FORECAST PERIOD. ONSHORE WINDS WILL BE LOCALLY GUSTY AT TIMES,  
PARTICULARLY DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS.  
OTHERWISE, WINDS WILL MOSTLY BE LIGHT.  
 
NOTE : ALL WINDS ARE 20-FOOT WINDS UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED.  
THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY STRONG, GUSTY AND ERRATIC WINDS.
