Sundowners and Excessive Heat Warning
Source: National Weather Service
Hot conditions return with elevated fire danger for interior portions of Southwest California this weekend. Hot temperatures with elevated fire danger is expected for interior portions of Southwest California Saturday and Sunday.
For southern portions of Santa Barbara County that are prone to Sundowner winds (including the Whittier Fire), elevated fire danger is expected by Friday evening due to a weak to moderate sundowner, combined with increasing temperatures and lowering humidities.
Triple digit heat is expected to be widespread across interior areas extending into the warmest valley locations Saturday and Sunday. In addition, very warm overnight low temperatures in the 70s and lower 80s in the mountains and foothills will add to the heat stress in these areas.
