The LAFD warns that we're entering the peak wildfire season and notes that their weather forecast is updated twice daily to issue warnings for potential fire areas.

Our current forecast is hot and dry with strong winds going through the mountains and canyons of LA and Ventura counties. Thankfully, though, we'll be cooling down this weekend.

Update: LAist was just in Chatsworth and saw the crazy billowing smoke clouds that can only mean a brush fire. Sadly, we didn't have our camera there to take pictures of the great sky scene or the stream of LAFD water tanker trucks heading towards the blaze with lights flashing. The fire threatens homes in the Moorpark area.
