November 11th marks first Santa Ana winds of season

Posted November 12, 2010, 1:00 PM.



In what was a very late start to their traditional fall appearances, Santa Ana winds showed up on Veteran's Day in the inland valleys.

The dry winds gusted between about 11am to 7pm yesterday, up to 43 mph in the inland valley (recorded in Riverside).

Other top wind gusts speeds were: French Valley (35 mph), Temecula (32 mph), Lake Elsinore (29 mph), Fallbrook (25 mph), Murrieta (23 mph), Moreno Valley (22 mph), Menifee (20 mph), Perris (18 mph), Wildomar (17 mph).

Another moderate round showed up overnight, primarily in Murrieta, Lake Elsinore, and Fallbrook.

Sensors in Hemet (14 mph) and De Luz (13 mph) are wind-sheltered and didn't pick up the extent of the winds in their respective areas.

Up until this point, offshore winds have been in the weak to moderate range. And, unlike the usual October winds, heat has not been a factor.

There were no reports of wildfires with the winds.
