A Red Flag Warning went into effect at 4 this morning and will continue through Wednesday at 6 p.m. for San Diego inland and mountain communities. A weak to moderate Santa Ana wind event will set up with humidity levels in the teens and single digits and dry gusty east to northeasterly winds.
Winds will gust up 20 to 35 mph today with winds peaking tonight into Wednesday morning with sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph and isolated gusts up to 65 mph. Due to the peak winds a High Wind Warning for inland and mountain neighborhoods will go into effect at 4 p.m. and continue through noon Wednesday.
The Santa Ana Wildfire Threat Index is forecasting a "Marginal" event today and Wednesday for San Diego county while when the winds peak we'll see a "Moderate" forecast for Tuesday. That means any fires that ignite will grow very rapidly and will be difficult to control.
Expect calmer winds and warm temperatures for Thanksgiving, in the 80s all the way to the beach!
