LOS ANGELES (AP) - Parts of Los Angeles County and surrounding areas are under a red flag warning, with winds expected to blow through mountain areas.
The National Weather Service says the warning for mountain areas should remain in effect through tomorrow morning.
Winds are expected to reach 18 to 30 miles per hour, with gusts up to 50 miles per hour in passes and canyons.
Dry conditions and humidity levels as low as 5 percent are also expected, with temperatures forecast to reach the 80s in many spots.
The warning applies to the mountains of Los Angeles County -- including the Santa Monica Recreational Area -- and the Angeles National Forest, the Santa Clarita Valley and the coastal valleys of Ventura County.
