Red Flag Warnings Continue for S.D. County

Extremely dry conditions are keeping red flag warnings up in San Diego’s east county. National Weather Service forecaster Stan Wasowski says low humidity is keeping the red flag warning in place today and it will probably be in effect till mid week. He says this is typical December weather for San Diego County.

Wasowski: This is the peak of the Santa Ana conditions and, you know, and we’ve been blown for like the last three to five days and that really desiccates the atmosphere as it pushes all the marine air way off the coast.

Wasowski says a storm system in the Pacific could change the weather pattern and reverse the easterly flow of dry desert air.  It’s not clear yet if that storm system will bring any rain to the region.
