Dry Southern California Weather Raises Fire Danger

Red flag warnings for fire danger are in effect for parts of Southern California due to gusty Santa Ana winds and low relative humidity levels.

The National Weather Service says surface high pressure over the Great Basin is bringing warm temperatures and dropping humidity levels down to as low as 3 percent in some areas.

Warnings are in place from San Diego County north into Ventura County until 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Forecasters say high temperatures could reach into the low 80s while the strongest wind gusts could hit 50 mph
