It's a Fire Weather Watch Kind of Weekend
The National Weather Service this afternoon issued a fire weather watch for portions of Los Angeles and Ventura counties between Sunday morning and Monday evening. That's because of the potential of high winds and very low humidities, they say.
Winds are expected to be 25 to 35 miles per hour with gusts up to 45. Humidity will go down to 15 percent or lower, making it easier for brush to burn.
