“Strong surface high pressure building over the Great Basin will create moderate to strong Santa Ana winds,” the weather service said. “The winds, low humidity and much warmer than normal weather will result in elevated to critical fire weather conditions Saturday evening through Monday.”
Winds are expected to be highest in the mountain passes, canyons, coastal slopes and coastal foothills, with gusts between 40 and 60 mph.
Highs inland are expected to be in the 80s, and the humidity is forecast to dip to 10 to 15 percent with “poor overnight recovery,” according to the weather service.
