In Los Angeles and Ventura Counties east winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph will continue at times today (Sunday) and again late tonight and Monday, however, winds are expected to be weaker on Monday. Meanwhile, minimum humidities of 3 to 10 percent will be common through at least the middle of next week, with widespread poor overnight recoveries mostly staying under 30 percent. As a result, critical Red Flag conditions will persist over most of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties through Sunday with a chance for locally critical conditions continuing into Monday especially in the mountains. The Santa Barbara County Mountains will also remain in critical fire weather conditions today due to plume development of the existing fire and very low humidity.
