STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — The Santa Ana winds are ripping this morning.
Wind gusts in the warning areas are reaching 35 to 50 mph.
A High Wind Warning is in effect for the mountains, the Santa Clarita Valley, Inland Empire, and Orange County. All other areas are under an advisory. We have a Red Flag Warning for basically the entire area.
The off-shore flow will peak this morning. We will see bone dry conditions and gusty winds through Friday.
Under the influence of this high pressure we will also see some extremely warm temperatures, some cities in the Inland Empire and San Fernando Valley should sit just below the century mark.
While the winds relax a bit on Friday, it still stays warm. Over the weekend we will have a cooling shift and a cut-off low could even give us a little drizzle or light showers late Sunday into Monday morning.
