For those of you lucky enough to have outdoor wind chimes and patio furniture, consider this brief post a little warning to maybe take them down and stash them safely inside.

According to the National Weather Service, Angelenos can expect some "gusty sundowner winds" both on Saturday and Sunday evenings. Consequently, a wind advisory has been issued for the Los Angeles area, valid from 6 p.m. Saturday evening until 3 a.m. Sunday morning.

While the strongest winds will be up in Santa Barbara County, Angelenos can still expect some strong gusts of up to 40 or 50 mph, especially in the canyon and valley areas. The NWS says it's possible that a similar, albeit slightly stronger, weather event could take place on Sunday evening as well.

High winds matched with low-humidities set conditions ripe for wildfire. Aside from the wind advisory, the NWS has issued a fire weather warning from 3 p.m. Sunday until 6 a.m. Monday morning for the mountains of Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.
