URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE

National Weather Service Los Angeles/San Diego/Orange Counties

630 AM PDT Mon Oct 23 2017

 

...DANGEROUS HEAT OVER SOUTHWEST CALIFORNIA MONDAY AND TUESDAY...

 

...GUSTY SANTA ANA WINDS MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY OVER LOS

ANGELES AND VENTURA COUNTIES...

 

A moderate Santa Ana wind event is expected to bring northeast

winds gusting to 40 to 60 mph over much of Ventura and Los

Angeles Counties Today through Wednesday. The winds should be

strongest on Tuesday...with isolated wind damage and power outages

possible.

 

Strong high pressure in combination with the offshore winds will

produce record setting high temperatures across southwest

California. The hottest days will be today and Tuesday when highs

between 95 and 105 will be common, even within a few miles of the

ocean. People living in coastal plains without air conditioning

should take precautions to avoid heat illness and heat stress. Low

temperatures will remain in the 70s to lower 80s in some locations.

This is a very unusual late season heat wave and should not be

taken lightly!

 

 

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

 

Take extra precautions Monday and Tuesday if you work or spend

time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to

early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat

exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting

clothing when possible and drink plenty of water. Never, ever,

leave people or pets in enclosed vehicles, even for a short

period of time.

 

When driving, use extra caution. Be prepared for sudden gusty

cross winds.
