Wind Advisary

I heard on the news this morning that there will be very high winds this Thursday and Friday.

Currently the watch covers Los Angeles and Ventura county mountain areas. A high wind watch is a precursor to an actual advisory or warning. Because of the potential magnitude of this event, Southern California travelers should be attentive to and monitor the developing situation. Extreme atmospheric pressure differences resulting in winds as high as 70 mph. or more are a good possibility from Thursday morning Dec. 1st through late Friday, Dec. 2nd.

70 mph?! Not driving the SUV to work. Normally we get these Santa Ana winds during fall season though not typically 70 mph. These winds typically blow from east to west (towards the ocean), maybe flights at LAX will have to land in reverse flow again.


Looks like all the wind activity is north of the San Bernardino mountains... not much down in the populated areas.
