RED FLAG WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH 11 PM TUESDAY FOR
THE SIERRA NEVADA, FOOTHILLS, AND TEHACHAPI MOUNTAINS...

Breezy northwest winds will continue through this evening
especially across the Kern County Mountains and desert areas and
will likely bring critical fire weather conditions to these areas.
On Tuesday, a trough of low pressure will bring easterly winds
through the Tehachapi Mountains and northeasterly winds through
the Serra Nevada. Some gusts in the Sierra Nevada could approach
30-40 mph Tuesday morning and afternoon. Critically dry fuels in
these areas will result in a greater threat of fire ignitions as
well as rapid fire growth and dangerous fire behavior.
