Red Flag Warning Extended through Saturday
The National Weather Service last night extended the Red Flag warning, due to expire last night, to Saturday evening for mountain areas of Los Angeles and Ventura counties. However, fire-weather related warnings for Valleys in both counties did expire last night. "While the offshore winds have weakened, the triple digit heat and single digit humidities continues across the valleys and mountains of Los Angeles and Ventura counties," a National Weather Service advisory said.
Temperatures across the region today are expected to hit highs of 97 in downtown, 101 in Van Nuys, 79 in Santa Monica, 103 in Woodland Hills, 85 in Long Beach and 101 in Pasadena.
