LOS ANGELES (AP) — Gusty Santa Ana winds have returned to parts of Southern California, bringing elevated fire danger.

Red flag warnings are in effect through Wednesday over the mountains and most valleys of Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

The National Weather Service says the northeast gusts will combine with warm and dry air to bring critical fire weather conditions.

Gusts could range up to 50 mph (80 kph) in wind-prone areas.
