We need to hear from you.

In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Despite our brief rebound with summer weather last week, it's technically Fall in Los Angeles and those pesky Santa Ana winds are gonna hit us tonight and through the rest of the weekend.

According to the National Weather Service, "damaging" winds will be blowing in from the northwest tonight and hit the Antelope Valley and mountains along the 5 Freeway and expect to top out around 60 miles per hour. By Sunday these winds will be coming in from the northeast and hit the urban areas of Los Angeles and Orange counties.

The area expected to be hit the hardest is the Santa Monica Mountains from Malibu to Camarillo, which can expect "damaging" winds lasting through to Tuesday.

These Santa Anas will be blowing in cold air, with the Antelope Valley and Lancaster possibly dipping as low as 28 degrees on Sunday night.
