A Red Flag warning remains in effect in the Santa Clarita Valley through 4 p.m. today as Santa Ana winds and low relative humidity combine to create a high fire danger, National Weather Service forecasters say.

A high wind warning for gusts up to 55 mph in the mountains and 50 mph in the valley areas — including the San Fernando and Simi valleys as well as the Santa Clarita Valley — will continue until noon, forecasters say.

Unseasonably high temperatures caused by high pressure over the Great Basin will continue to keep the Santa Clarita Valley warm and dry throughout the week, with no rain expected, forecasters said.

Highs are expected to reach 73 degrees Tuesday, 70 degrees Wednesday and into the high 60s the rest of the week, with lows in the low 40s to 50.

Winds will diminish through the week, and skies will be partly cloudy to sunny.
