STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — The winds are howling this morning and we are only at the very beginning of this Santa Ana event.
By tonight the wind warnings and Red Flag warnings kick in for most of the area. The combination of high pressure building from the pacific and dry cool air exiting the region are encouraging this off-shore flow. The winds out of the North and eventually Northeast are drying things out and warming the area. So you can expect temperatures to rise a bit over the next couple of days as well. Skies will be clear.
The peak of this Santa Ana Wind will be from around 2 a.m. until lunch time on Friday. By Friday evening and Saturday…the winds will slowly decrease. We are going to keep our temperatures above average through the weekend and beginning of next week…before another trough moves into the west coast and cools us off a bit.
