  • ...More record heat with elevated fire danger Sunday through Tuesday across southwest California... An upper level high pressure system combined with moderate offshore flow near the surface will bring another round of record heat with elevated fire danger Sunday through Tuesday across southwest California. The gusty Santa Ana winds will mostly impact Ventura and Los Angeles counties...with the strongest winds likely Sunday night through Monday. During this time...wind gusts between 35 and 50 mph will be common across wind prone areas of Ventura and Los Angeles counties...with local gusts up to 60 mph possible in favored mountain locations. Forecasted high temperatures are expected to climb into the mid 80s to lower 90s across many portions of the coast and valleys in Ventura and Los Angeles counties Sunday through Tuesday. The unusual February heat wave will make sunday's Los Angeles Marathon even more challenging with high temperatures climbing into the mid to upper 80s by afternoon. The unsually hot February temperatures will bring an increased risk of heat related illnesses for the elderly and anyone performing strenuous outdoor activities.
