The National Weather Service released an alert this afternoon announcing that the Santa Anas have weakened and wind advisories throughout most of the region ended at 3:00 p.m. However, the advisory for the mountain areas of Ventura County and LA County (excluding the Santa Monica Mt. Range) are still in effect until 8:00 p.m. tonight. The good news out of this is that air quality could improve with wind subsiding on the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valley floors. Still, weather can change in an instant and fire departments are taking no chances. UPDATE: Another e-mail from the NWS says that Red Flag Warnings will still remain in effect until 10:00 p.m. Wednesday.
