Get ready for a weather roller coaster. The Santa Anas make a return today, large ocean surf with possible 14-foot breakers is expected through Wednesday and heavy rain is forecast to arrive Thursday. "We're going to have the best of ocean swells for the year coming into Southern California and the biggest rain of the season, plus a fire weather watch because of offshore winds," said Stuart Seto, a weather specialist for the National Weather Service.

Dry conditions and a return of Santa Ana winds prompted red flag warnings Friday by the National Weather Service for Los Angeles and six other counties, an indication of added fire risks. The warnings, which took effect at noon in mountain areas of L.A., Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Ventura and Kern counties, are expected to last until at least 6 p.m. Sunday. Winds of up to 75 mph are expected.

Thanksgiving travelers beware: this week's forecast for Southern California includes fog, Santa Ana winds and fire warnings. The National Weather Service issued a fire weather watch for Los Angeles and Ventura counties, excluding the Antelope Valley, for Friday afternoon to Sunday morning as cool winds pick up and the humidity drops into the single digits from Malibu to the Hollywood Hills.

The Thanksgiving travel season got off to a bad start as dozens of flights were delayed or diverted Sunday night into Monday morning because of dense fog blanketing Bob Hope Airport in Burbank. And Southern California can expect another weather menace later this week: the return of Santa Ana winds. Thick coastal fog also shut down one of two runways for arriving flights at Los Angeles International Airport late Monday night.

Thirteen days after fire forced them from their homes, Santiago Canyon residents were allowed to return Saturday when expected flame-fanning Santa Ana winds didn't materialize. Fire officials lifted the mandatory evacuation order at 4 p.m., but emphasized that complete containment of Orange County's Santiago fire isn't anticipated until this evening.

How bad are the winds going to be this weekend? Fire-weary Southern California received some good news Friday when the National Weather Service predicted that the winds forecast for this weekend will be weaker than originally feared. Forecasters still issued red flag warnings through Sunday night because of dry conditions, but officials said winds will be nowhere as strong as they were two weekends ago when devastating fires broke out across the region.

The expected return of strong Santa Ana winds beginning this afternoon had fire officials across Southern California racing to boost defenses and implement some of the lessons learned during last week's destructive brush fires. The National Weather Service on Thursday issued red flag warnings for much of the Southland through at least Sunday night.

Firefighters hurried Monday to control the stubborn wildfires that continued to burn throughout Southern California before the Santa Ana winds return this week. Forecasters are predicting offshore winds by the weekend, though the ferocity was expected to be less than the gale-force winds that spread wildfires through the region's bone-dry tinder last week. Moist air and lower temperatures in recent days have helped firefighters battle the blazes.

Under cool, moist skies, firefighters on Saturday made significant strides against the remaining fires in Southern California. Displaced residents streamed back to their homes, and hard-hit San Diegans prepared to cheer on their Chargers in a football stadium that, just days before, had been an emergency shelter for thousands. Firefighters hoped that balmy temperatures would help them maintain their gains on many fronts today.
