The lows for the Santa Clarita Valley over the next five to seven days are expected to stay in the low-50s, according to Weather Service projections. Fire weather officials caution that any fires that spark will have the ability to grow very rapidly and exhibit other kinds of extreme fire behavior, such as fire whirls or "tornadoes" and erratic spreading.

The Santa Clarita weather forecast shows gusts as high as 50 miles per hour to start off the week, with temperatures expected to increase throughout the week into the high 70s.

If winds persist, the Red Flag Warning could possibly be extended into Friday or Saturday, the National Weather Service added.

Forecasters say the offshore flow is likely to last into next week, and that San Diego is unlikely to receive significant rain for the first half of December.

The relative humidity will drop to 10 percent across most of the county on Monday, and will remain low for most of the week.
