Sunny, cool conditions are expected to remain through Thanksgiving weekend, as Santa Ana winds return this week, officials said. Temperatures will remain in the mid-70s and upper 60s with mostly clear skies throughout the week, said Bonnie Bartling, weather specialist with the National Weather Service. An off-shore wind will be blowing over the next several days between 15 and 25 mph. Despite cooler weather, there is still a fire risk because of dry conditions, a fire inspector said. “Just be cautious about using spark-causing machinery and camp fires,” Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Jason Hurd said. “Be cognizant of where you are, and if you see any smoke, dial 9-1-1 immediately.” last_img
