Red Flag Warning: More Dry, Windy Weather On Tap

Posted: Updated:
Los Angeles, CA -

(FOX 11 / CNS) A wind gust of 78 miles per hour swept across a mountain peak near Malibu early Sunday, as critical fire weather blew in on strong Santa Ana winds.

The National Weather Service hoisted Red Flag Warnings for much of Los Angeles and Orange counties for the second time in a week. The 78-mph wind gust was recorded at Laguna Peak, just above Point Mugu and 10 miles west of Malibu.

Gusty winds moved into Malibu by late morning, and were to spread into the valleys and passes around the L.A. Basin as the day continued. The National Weather Service said high winds would last into the evening, while weaker Santa Anas will blow Monday.

The Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions are expected. Along with dry bushes and trees, the weather could create extreme fire danger and/or fire behavior, according to the NWS.

In Pasadena, the fire department activated Red Flag parking restrictions at 3 a.m. Sunday, in effect through 10 p.m. tonight. In order to allow for improved fire department access and resident evacuation, parking was restricted on posted narrow and/or winding roads near foothill wildlands.

No restrictions were posted by the City of Los Angeles for its Red Flag zones in the Hollywood Hills, however. The decreasing winds Monday will bring less cold desert air blowing in, and that will mean more warm temperatures, the NWS said. It was not clear yet, however, if "more warm''  equals the record-setting 85 degrees some areas saw last week.
