Red Flag Warning

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

The National Fire Weather Service issued a Red Flag Warning for the Santa Monica Mountains (and other areas) beginning this morning at 4:00 am and going through tomorrow, Wednesday, November 6 at 3:00 pm. Strong surface high pressure building into the great basin tonight will set the stage for a moderate Santa Ana wind event across the area. The strongest Northeast winds will occur across Ventura & Los Angeles counties, with the winds developing across the mountains then filtering down to the coastal and valley areas. The winds will peak in strength this morning then slowly diminish this afternoon as the offshore winds develop. Relative humidity will drop overnight and bottom out in the low teens and single digits on today. Given the combination of gusty winds & low relative humidity, critical fire weather conditions are expected across all coastal areas of Los Angeles County.

Red Flag warnings issued by the National Weather Service identify time periods when conditions are ideal for wildfires. During Red Flag warnings it is especially important to:

  • Report any signs of smoke immediately to emergency responders. If on the Malibu campus call Public Safety at (310) 506-4441. At all other locations report smoke by calling 911.
  • Use caution when disposing of cigarettes and ensure that they are completely extinguished.
