A red flag warning has been issued until 6 p.m. Tuesday for parts of Los Angeles County, including local mountains and the Santa Clarita Valley, as wind gusts and dry conditions increase the threat of fire.

Wind gusts on Monday could reach 50 mph in the mountains before starting to subside on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Temperatures in the tri-city area are expected to warm into the mid-80s through Wednesday before clouds return, bringing with them a 30% chance of rain Thursday evening, the weather service said.
