Inside Slider to bring strong Santa Ana winds to Simi Valley

By Jim Purpura. Posted November 29, 2011, 10:53 AM.



The first significant Santa Ana wind event of the fall season, and possibly the strongest event in several years, is expected in Simi Valley and Ventura County.

A storm system is forecast to take an track from the northwest to along the California/Nevada border. This type of storm is named an "inside slider" for its inside track. It usually lacks the rich moisture of weather systems that have a long track over the Pacific. They are often quite cold with low snow levels. This storm system is also expected to bring strong Santa Ana winds.

Greatest impacts will likely begin Wednesday evening with northeast facing valley and canyons having the highest winds. Simi Valley could see potentially damaging winds gusts of 50-60 mph. The ridge tops of mountains in Ventura County could see 70-80 mph winds.. Winds will begin to diminish later Thursday evening, but it will continue to be breezy through Friday.

Remember weather observations, including wind speeds, for Simi Valley are updated every 1 minute, so please check back often.
