Large parts of Southern California were hit with Santa Ana winds Monday in what some meteorologists are saying might be the biggest Santa Ana event this year, with possible public safety power outages for tens of thousands of residents amid concerns about fire dangers.
The National Weather Service in San Diego has issued a wind advisory that will remain in effect until 2 p.m. for portions of the Inland Empire, the coastal mountain slopes for Riverside and San Bernardino counties, and the Santa Ana mountains into portions of inland Orange County.
Wind advisories are also in effect through 3 p.m. for the mountains and valleys in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. Gusts of winds could be up to 50 mph or stronger, said David Sweet, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Oxnard.
Monday’s weather is expected to be dry with relatively low humidity, creating elevated to briefly critical fire conditions in parts of Southern California, Sweet said.
