Heat, Wind And New Fire Danger Warning In LA Area

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hot, dry and windy conditions in Southern California have spurred forecasters to extend a red flag warning of high fire danger for another 24 hours.

The National Weather Service says the warning will be in effect until 3 p.m. Sunday for the San Gabriel mountains and the Angeles and Los Padres national forests. The warning had been scheduled to expire at the same time Saturday.

Forecasters say winds of 15 to 20 miles per hour with gusts up to 30 miles per hour are forecast for the passes and canyons, along with relative humidity in single digits.
