It’s my least favorite time of the year in Socal. For the last decade late October in Socal has produced at least a week of wildfire-producing conditions – unnaturally high temperatures, high east-to-west winds (the Santa Anas), and single digit humidity. All those conditions will exist today (10-24) in San Diego and Fallbrook, and likely again tomorrow. It’s predicted to be 97 degrees today in Fallbrook.
For those in the area, stay alert and make sure your vehicle is gassed up (or charged up) and ready to roll. Have a go-bag already packed and in the vehicle. If you have animals, do what you need to do to get them ready to move. And for those with loved ones in the area, stay in touch with them.
