The combination of gusty north winds, low relative humidity and very dry fuels will elevate fire danger today through Thursday. A Red Flag Warning is in effect early Wednesday until Thursday morning for the Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Los Angeles county mountains. Little or no relative humidity recovery is expected as gusty north winds develop and dry the air mass overnight. The gusty winds will likely redevelop over the Santa Barbara south coast this evening and again Wednesday evening but the relative humidity is expected to briefly fall below critical levels.
