Antelope Valley wind advisory cancelled
Despite continued winds, the higher humidity in the Antelope Valley and surrounding areas allowed the National Weather Service to end a red flag warning and cancel a wind advisory Tuesday evening.
By about 8 p.m., winds in the Antelope Valley had fallen to between 15 and 25 mph, with gusts of 40 mph. A combination of much higher gusty winds, low humidity and warm temperatures earlier in the day put the area at a high risk of fire.
Temperatures in the Antelope Valley reached 92 degrees. Overnight temperatures could drop below 70 degrees.
Red flag warnings remain in place until 11 p.m. for Apple Valley and Lucerne Valley and the mountains in San Bernardino, San Diego and Riverside counties.
