California Weather Troubles This Weekend (Santa Ana winds in Southern California )
Accuweather ^ | Jan 22, 2011; 1:49 PM ET | By Kristina Pydynowski, Senior Meteorologis

An area of high pressure that typically promotes calm weather will actually spell trouble for parts of California the rest of this weekend.

The high will be the culprit behind dense fog returning to the state's Central Valley, as well as another Santa Ana wind event over Southern California.

Both dangers will develop tonight and persist into Sunday, especially the first part of the day.

The winds will gust between 45 and 65 mph with those highest gusts set to be recorded in the mountains.

As is typical during any Santa Ana wind event, the strongest winds will howl across the mountains and through and below northeast-southwest oriented passes and canyons. Oxnard will turn windy, but not Downtown Los Angeles and San Diego.

The strength of the winds tonight into Sunday could down trees, power lines and road signs. Unsecured parts of buildings and lawn items may sustain damage.

The winds also threaten to overturn or steer semi-trucks and campers off roadways. This danger pertains to those motorists planning to travel out of Interstate 15's Cajon Pass towards Los Angeles.

As was the case earlier this week, a high fire danger will not accompany this Santa Ana wind event. The region's soil and vegetation remain moist from December's onslaught of torrential rain.

Oh jeez,
if it’s not rain, then it’s mud slides, or earthquakes, or overpaid state employees, or wind is blowing, or fire.
Seems like all they do in Kalipornia is complain.....

Thanks for the Ping, Ernest. I completely missed hearing the weather forecast today on the news. When they issue these wind warnings, they also should issue an allergy warning.

This afternoon I sent a pic to family back East. My deck thermometer shows 76 F (in the shade). Winds are calm and the sky is CAVU. Blue and sunny here in N. California.

You must be talking about that area of CA that is 400 plus miles south of here. LOL.

Sneaker waves on the Humboldt coast claimed another tourist yesterday but one was able to swim out of it which is truly a miracle ... 20 to 25 feet swells

So I guess that means that you don't like the winds very much, eh?
