233 PM PDT Sun Jul 22 2018

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT LATE TUESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
THURSDAY MORNING FOR SANTA BARBARA COUNTY MOUNTAINS AND SOUTH
COAST DUE TO GUSTY NORTHWEST TO NORTH WINDS, LOW HUMIDITIES, AND
HOT TEMPERATURES...

.A strong upper-level ridge of high pressure moving west into the
region will bring a long-duration heat wave to the region through
at least Thursday. Triple digit heat will be common across
foothill and mountain locations. Meanwhile, a tightening
northwest pressure gradient will generate several days of gusty
Sundowner winds during the late afternoon through nighttime hours
through Wednesday. While the gusty Sundowner winds will bring
elevated fire weather concerns to southern Santa Barbara county
through Monday, rising temperatures and lowering humidities on
Tuesday and Wednesday will bring the potential for critical fire
weather conditions during this time period. During diminished wind
periods, there is also the potential for large vertical plume
growth across interior sections due to the hot and unstable
conditions.
