FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY AFTERNOON FOR GUSTY NORTHEAST WINDS, SINGLE DIGIT HUMIDITIES AND HOT TEMPERATURES FOR THE MOUNTAINS OF VENTURA AND LOS ANGELES COUNTIES AND THE SANTA CLARITA VALLEY. Surface high pressure will build into the Great Basin Thursday night into Friday which should help to strengthen the offshore flow over southwestern California, especially for Ventura and Los Angeles Counties. This will bring the possibility of a moderate Santa Ana wind event Thursday night into Friday, especially over the mountains of Ventura and Los Angeles Counties and Santa Clarita Valley where wind gusts 35 to to 45 mph will be possible. This combined with humidities lowering into the single digits will bring the potential for critical fire weather conditions to this area during the period
