The National Weather Service issued a rare “extreme red flag warning” from 11 p.m. Tuesday to 6 p.m. on Thursday for much of Los Angeles and Ventura counties due to the Santa Ana wind that “could be one of the strongest of recent memory.”

The Santa Ana wind is “a weather condition in which strong, hot, dust-bearing winds descend to the Pacific Coast around Los Angeles from inland desert regions,” the National Weather Service glossary explains.

A combination of gusts up to 80 mph in mountains and some valleys with humidity levels in the single digits may lead to “a remarkable and dangerous event” across Southern California before conditions improve.
