LOS ANGELES — A second day of gusty Santa Ana winds and low relative humidity levels means increased fire danger for much of Southern California.

Motorists are urged to use caution Thursday in mountain areas, where gusts could top 60 mph.

The National Weather Service says red flag warnings for wildfire risk will remain in effect until through the evening.

Additional crews are stationed in danger areas across the region in case fires are sparked.

Humidity levels slipped into the low teens and single digits on Wednesday as temperatures rose into the 80s.

Winds are expected to calm down on Friday.
