Red flag alert issued
A red flag alert was issued by the National Weather Service on Monday afternoon and remained in effect through yesterday morning. The alert was issued due to high pressure aloft producing very warm and dry conditions for areas including the Angeles National Forest.
Many of the affected locations suffered with single digit relative humidities and gusty winds, furthering concern.
According to the service report, the combination of strong winds, low humidity and warm temperatures create “explosive” fire growth potential.
