Good News Bad News For New Years Eve /SOCAL

Bad News - CRITICAL FIRE CONDITIONS ARE CERTAIN, HIGH WINDS, SINGLE DIGIT LOW HUMIDITIES, DOWNSLOPE WINDS

Good News - THREE WET STORMS COMING IN BEHIND THIS WEATHER EVENT IF SOMETHING STARTS BURNING DRENCHING STORMS WILL ASSIST FIRE FIGHTING EFFORTS STARTING THURSDAY

FIRE WEATHER WARNING
ONTARIO WEATHER SERVICE
DECEMBER 30, 2007 - 5AM

ALL OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, EXCLUDING THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA DESERTS....

VALID NEW YEARS EVE AND NEW YEARS DAY, INTO WEDNESDAY

FIRE WARNING : CONSIDERABLE EVIDENCE SUGGESTS THAT WITH THE WARM TYPE WINDS, RELATIVE HUMIDITY WILL DROP INTO THE SINGLE DIGITS IN MANY SPOTS. THIS; COMBINED WITH THE STRONGER WIND, WILL MAKE FOR CRITICAL FIRE CONDITIONS. THE FIRE WEATHER WARNING IS JUSTIFIED IN OWS ISSUING IT. THE WARNING WAS REPLACED FROM THE FIRE WEATHER WATCH WE ISSUED BACK ON THE MORNING OF DECEMBER 28, 2007 FOR THIS EVENT. A FIRE WEATHER WARNING MEANS THAT CONDITIONS ARE CERTAIN AND KNOWN THAT FIRE CONDITIONS WILL BE AT CRITICAL LEVELS DURING THE WARNING PERIOD.

WARNING PERIOD ENDS WEDNESDAY EVENING AT 4PM FOR ALL AREAS. WE MAY KEEP HOLD OF THE WARNING FOR SAN DIEGO COUNTY MOUNTAINS OVER THE DAY WEDNESDAY AND DROP IT ELSEWHERE DUE TO DRIER AIR CALCULATED THERE.

MORE INFORMATION ON THE EXTENSION INTO WEDNESDAY FOR THAT AREA WILL BE NOTED IN FUTURE UPDATES.

AS PREVIOUSLY SPOKEN ABOUT. IF FIRES DO START, A STORM TRAIN IS SETTING UP ON THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, AND POSSIBLY SUNDAY. THIS MEANS RAIN WOULD BE ON THE WAY TO HELP EFFORTS, UNLIKE LAST OCTOBER.

Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
