With summer-like temperatures and gusty winds forecast, a red-flag warning is in effect for much of Southern California through Wednesday. Building high pressure is expected to create an "extended moderate to strong Santa Ana wind event" across Los Angeles and Ventura counties through Wednesday afternoon, with potential gusts of over 60 mph in the mountains and up to 50 mph in the valleys, according to the National Weather Service. The high winds and low humidity, along with built-up stores of dry fuel and a lack of rain, prompted the weather service to issue the red-flag warning -- meaning critical fire conditions -- for all of Ventura County and most of Los Angeles County, according to the Los Angeles Times . Temperatures are expected to increase as the week wears on, with the potential to set records.

The museum, which has bounced around Los Angeles since 1981, is one step closer to putting down roots across the street from the Americana at Brand. Once it opens, it will become Glendale's first full-fledged art museum. “It's been a long haul moving from place to place and finally we're going to have a home here in Glendale,” said David Svenson, president of the museum's board of directors.
