Breezy winds and heightened fire danger will be our main focus as we head in to the Thanksgiving holiday week. A Red Flag Warning is in effect for portions of Ventura Counties through at least early next week. This also means plenty of sunshine and a warming trend as well.
So for tonight, look for mostly clear skies with just some passing high clouds. Overnight lows will be chilly where the winds are light...look for most areas to be in the 50's and 40's.
For Monday, expect clear skies with just some passing clouds from time to time and winds from the northeast. With the breezy and very dry conditions, fire fighting could be very difficult in our foothills and mountains! Highs will be mostly in the 60's and 70's.
Looking ahead, high pressure will continue to produce northeasterly or offshore winds across much of Southern and Central California through about Wednesday. This means we will see a very nice and even warm last week of November. Thanksgiving looks nice as well although more clouds are expected to fill back in as Pacific storms approach the West Coast. Our forecast computer is split on the long range forecast. We could see a possible storm system by late next weekend ...that's about 7 to 8 days out and in the weather business, an eternity of possibilities! For now, we will just increase the cloud cover and cool things down as we get ready to say goodbye to November!
