The Santa Ana winds event that began Tuesday was forecasted to continue Thursday, with wind gusts expected to pick up Thursday morning.
The extreme red flag warning will remain in effect until 6 p.m. Thursday, and the Santa Ana winds should continue to pound the region until the warning expires.
The low humidity was also expected to keep up the fire threat in Southern California, after about a dozen fires burned through Southern California and forced thousands of evacuations Wednesday.
