A fire broke out in Placerita Canyon, just east of the Santa Clarita areas and along Highway 14. The fire is moving east-northeast along the highway and residential zones along this area will be immediately threatened through the next 24 hours. Read more to get the details on ground level.
Look at the next 24 hours it appears that 10-15 mph winds on average moving along Highway 14 from Santa Clarita to Acton will continue with this fire on an east-northeast movement, which is in line to threaten the homes along Highway 14.
If you are in Santa Clarita proper along I-5 you will not be affected by this fire as Santa Ana Winds or strong offshore flow is not expected. However, if you are between the fire and Acton you need to be alert and continue to monitor all official notices that departments will be releasing.
During the night, winds will relax and movement should cease from where it will be going today … with some indications of a reverse weak flow after midnight until sunrise … so strong winds will not be an issue with efforts on fighting this blaze.
One thing to keep in mind is the onshore flow becoming stronger on Monday afternoon/evening. 20 mph winds will make the fire return to a east-northeast travel along Highway 14, in the same direction it is going today. It’ll remain hot as we near the end, but very sharp high temperature contrast heatwave … with cooler weather returning by mid-end week below heatwave warning levels.
General wind patterns for smoke plume motion will be to Acton through the next 24 hours, with a north flow to the Antelope Valley, which could make Air Quality issues in the Acton, Lancaster, and Palmdale forecast zones. Issues on Air Quality will be addressed shortly for you.
