Los Angeles California. – The warning for fire risk has been extended in parts of southern California until this Saturday at 6:00 pm reported the National Weather Service (NWS).
The Santa Ana winds continue in Ventura and Los Angeles counties, “bringing gusts of northeast wind and little humidity through Saturday,” according to the NWS.
The strongest gusts occurred on Friday, however winds still persist that “will gradually weaken on Saturday afternoon.” Low humidity and dry ground conditions keep a warning for “critical fire hazard during this time”, according to the NWS forecast.
“Strong northeast winds will also create dangerous conditions in the east-facing ports of Catalina Island, especially the Port of Avalon,” according to the NWS.
This Friday a brush fire was reported near Highway 101 in Paso Robles, however fire crews managed to contain the fire.
The authorities have asked to drive carefully because strong crosswinds and falling objects and tree limbs can pose a hazard to travelers.
