The Culver City Real Estate area is experiencing an excessive heat, wind, and red flag warning, which will continue through tonight and possibly into Thursday. Though the most critical fire conditions were expected to occur on Monday and Tuesday, the area is still in “a long-duration fire weather threat,” according to a National Weather Service (NWS) Statement.

Martin Feinberg, Culver City Realtor, warns that the NWS reported a risk of wildfire for Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo counties as well.

“The duration, strength and widespread nature of this Santa Ana wind event combined with the extreme heat and very dry fuels will bring the most dangerous fire weather conditions that Southwest California has seen in the past few years. If fire ignition occurs, there will be the potential for very rapid spread of wildfire.” “Extreme fire behavior,” and “a threat to life and property” could also occur.

The weather for Culver City for the next three days is as follows:

  • Wednesday
    Sunny and hot, with a high near 98. North northeast wind 10 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.
  • Wednesday Night
    Clear, with a low around 61.
  • Thursday
    Sunny, with a high near 93.
  • Thursday Night
    Clear, with a low around 58.
  • Friday
    Sunny, with a high near 89.
  • Friday Night
    Clear, with a low around 58.

The National Weather Service advises people to take precautions today in order to stay safe from both the extreme heat and gusting winds.

“Take extra precautions through Wednesday if you work or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water. Never, ever, leave people or pets in enclosed vehicles, even for a short period of time. When driving, use extra caution. Be prepared for sudden gusty crosswinds.”
