Southern California Weather Force has issued a Santa Ana Wind Watch for a strong Santa Ana Wind Event expected to arrive Wednesday and go into some of Thanksgiving. This is also a Fire Weather Watch and if you are in a prone area, now is the time to get your plans together, clear the brush around the house, and even prepare for power outages so read on for details …
The SCWF Santa Ana Wind Watch is now officially in effect for below passes and canyons. SCWF Santa Ana Wind Risk Model paints where the winds will affect the most, including the strong and ‘damaging wind’ color, which is evident in some areas. This will be the type where it will be dangerous to even drive high profile vehicles through the pass areas affected by the magenta color on the model provided below.
Given the area has been parched lately, expecting this to also have a high fire hazard with it, owning to this as well being an official SCWF Fire Weather Watch. If you are in the shaded areas, whether yellow, red, or magenta, or in a fire risk prone zone nominal to the Santa Ana Winds, clear the brush around your home to minimize the hazard for fires to affect you directly. This also will be a power-shutdown for some areas, so have your power-shutdown precautions ready.
LONG RANGE: There is evidence that the surface ridge west of here deflecting the storms north of here will erode the first week of December. When this happens, the door opens for storms to dip down into the area.
I control 10 counties in Southern California so there is a lot to say for various areas. The best I can do is let the images below speak for themselves. They are separated into 1 row of six. Four zones that I control. If you are in Southern California, you are in one of these. Each is identical so zone 1 is the same on all the rows and so on. Image 5 is Cajon Pass, and Image 6 is the SCV area. Here is the key to the rows below. They are extremely detailed and clickable.
NOTE: You also get e-mailed alerts/articles because if you do not want to miss my social media posts, and/or I issue a product not on my social media accounts, being a supporting website member is the way to go. You get your own control panel with hundreds of zones to choose from to receive my custom alerts from. Click here if you are interested in reading more.
