Fire danger is elevated through Monday for parts of Southern California. Red Flag Warnings have already been issued starting at 10 pm Saturday and continuing through 3 pm Monday PST. A Red Flag Warning is issued when critical fire weather conditions are happening, which includes warm temperatures, very dry air, and strong winds. https://twitter.com/twitter/statuses/957041383189094400 With strong high pressure building in to the Great Basin region this weekend, we will see gusty northeast winds set up.  This is also known as a Santa Ana wind event, with gusts forecast 55-65 mph in the mountains and up to 50 mph in the valleys. These dry, downsloping winds combined with the increase in temperatures can lead to extreme fire behavior. For WeatherNation, I'm Meredith Garofalo
