SANTA ANA WIND / FIRE WARNING: Rare June Santa Ana Wind Event Developing Sunday night Through Monday With Dangerous Fire Hazards Up To Station Fire Levels


Southern California Weather Force has issued the official Santa Ana Wind Warning starting Sunday and going through Monday.  This has also prompted the Fire Weather Warning as warm temperatures along with the dry air working in will promote fire conditions on the level of the August 2009 Station Fire conditions so read on for details.

If you have been following National Weather Force (Click here to the Facebook Post) then you will note that I predicted a rare snow level chance for parts of Central/Eastern Oregon into Idaho and that event will happen tonight into Sunday.  That one rare event will cause another rare event in the butterfly effect.  Because of the cold air in place up north, The Great Basin will cool-down to abnormal June levels and create thermal support.  This thermal support will rush southward and into our mountain passes and jet out of the north and northeast in what is called a Santa Ana Wind.  Take note that power may be shut-off once again or that the power can go out with downed power-poles in the yellow, orange, and red shaded zones below –
