LOS ANGELES (AP) — Forecasters say portions of Southern California can expect another round of high winds and hot, dry weather conditions that that will raise the threat of wildfire.

The National Weather Service has issued a fire weather watch for mountain areas in Ventura and Los Angeles counties starting Wednesday morning through the afternoon.

Meteorologist Stuart Seto says gusts of up to 45 mph are expected in the mountains with the return of inland Santa Ana winds.

The Santa Clarita and San Fernando valleys will also be under a fire weather watch.

Forecasters say the conditions — including very low humidity — are expected to persist into Thursday, when temperatures will drop and winds will shift.
