With firefighting resources stretched to the limit by wildfires burning across California, officials in Santa Barbara County are bracing for critical fire weather conditions over the next few days.

With the combination of gusty north winds and low relative humidity fire danger will be elevated and any new fire starts will spread rapidly.

Gusty northerly winds and low humidity in the mountains of Los Angeles and Ventura counties, and in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys, have combined to produce a reg flag warning that began Thursday evening.

The warning will be in place Friday night through Saturday morning, Bonnie Bartling of the National Weather Service told KPCC. Gusts of up to 50 miles per hour are expected Saturday morning, when they'll turn into Santa Anas, which are warmer and more widespread. Red Flag Warnings can change throughout the day as the National Weather Service offices around the country update and revise their forecasts.
