Sundowner winds creating brush fire concerns for southern Santa Barbara County
Strongest winds predicted for Tuesday night, but there could be a second wave Wednesday night.
Parts of the Tri-Counties could see some gusty sundowner winds, a situation which is creating brush fire concerns.
Southern Santa Barbara County could see wind gusts in the 40 to 60 mile an hour range. There is a Red Flag Warning for Santa Barbara County’s mountains from 5 p.m. Tuesday until 9 a.m. Wednesday, as well as a Fire Weather Watch.
The strongest wind is expected Tuesday night, but there could be a weaker sundowner event Wednesday night.
A system moving our way from the Pacific Northwest will mean a big change in the weather Thursday, with a cooling trend, and temperatures four to eight degrees below normal for this time of year.
