The National Weather Service says light offshore winds will flow into Southern California Saturday morning and could bring local gusts of up to 25 mph in mountain passes and canyons.
However, the winds are not expected to be widespread like the
hot, dry Santa Ana winds that helped fan this week's deadly wildfires.
Calmer winds in recent days have helped firefighters make progress against the blazes that continue to burn across a wide swath of outhern California. The fires have destroyed at least 1,800 homes and triggered the largest evacuation in state history.
