National Weather Service issues red flag warnings

The National Weather Service has issued a red-flag warning encompassing a vast area of mountainous Southern California.

Gusting Santa Ana winds and extremely dry conditions will contribute to an increased fire danger from Sunday night to Monday afternoon in the mountains of Los Angeles, Ventura, Riverside, Orange, San Bernardino and San Diego counties, according to weather service meteorologist Todd Hall.

“This is the time of year when our [conditions] are driest, and we get the most abundant Santa Ana winds,” said Hall, based in Oxnard. “I hope people would have their properties ready for a fire season, and have their brush cleared.”
