Just in time for the holidays... With strong winds coming in from Nevada, humidity expected to dip into the teens or single digits and fuels (dry brush, etc) only showing minor recovery from the recent rains, the National Weather Service has issued a red flag warning for much of Los Angeles and Ventura counties for Tuesday through Wednesday. The strongest winds will be focused across the passes and canyon of the region with gusts up to 55 MPH in the mountains and 45 MPH in the Valleys. From Malibu through the Hollywood Hills and downtown, winds could blow up to 45 MPH with local gusts averaging around 20-25 MPH.
