California Fire Update Overnight Wednesday – Thursday Dec 6, 2017

The fire story in southern California is an ever-changing one. Check back in frequently for further updates and any new information that we receive.

As of Thursday Morning

Cal Fire released an updated list of the wildfire size in the greater Los Angeles, CA area.

This was the message many people in the area received on their cell phone and/or tablets Wednesday night:

The National Weather Service used stern terminology late Wednesday regarding the forecast of ‘extremely critical fire weather continues for Ventura and Los Angeles counties for late Wednesday night into Thursday.’

Extreme fire conditions are likely to continue Thursday with wind gusts of 70 miles per hour or stronger. Cal Fire issued some important safety tips via Twitter late Wednesday night.

The weather will remain gusty, in terms of the wind Thursday, but also very warm and dry. Temperatures will be well above average which will result in a lower relative humidity. This area has also seen very little rainfall since October first of this year. Plus, a strong area of high pressure is locked into the West, keeping this area dry for the next several days. All of this has combined for the dangerous fire weather that we are currently seeing.
