A Red Flag warning -- used as a way of notifying the public and different agencies of the increased risk for fire -- is in effect for most of Southern California from Sunday through Tuesday, as warmer temperatures and gusty Santa Ana Winds could result in higher incidences of brush fires and similar problems, according to a National Weather Service report.

throughout most of Southern California, from Orange County's coastal areas to the Inland Empire and parts of San Diego.

A high pressure system moving along the coast is expected to account for the warmer and dryer temperatures.

Winds and gusts are expected to be at their highest levels on Sunday at 25-35 mph for winds and up to 70 mph for gusts, according to the NWS.

Good if we can just get CALFire to not start any "controlled" burns.....Pendleton not to drop any bombs....and BLM officers not to drive their jeeps on dry grass.....and we might make it through OK.

Perhaps a Press Release aimed at GOVERNMENT workers...instead of us civilians.

You forgot to mention SDG&E, although, now is NOT the time to trim the branches around power lines. Should have been done much earlier than now!

Apparently there is a big one burning a little to the south of us right now in the RB/Poway area.....
