Winds will be slightly less gusty Tuesday across SoCal as a red flag warning remains in effect through the evening.

Another burst of Santa Ana winds is blowing through Southern California on Tuesday, with fire danger continuing through the evening.

The red flag warning is in effect until Tuesday night, meaning winds could again topple trees and power poles and quickly spread any fires that start in the brush.

The warm winds could reach speeds of up to 50 mph in parts of Santa Clarita and even stronger through some canyons and passes. Combined with the dry brush conditions, officials are warning of an elevated fire danger over the next two days.

Southland areas impacted by the warning include mountain areas in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside and Ventura counties, as well as coastal and valley communities. Most warnings are set to expire at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

On Tuesday, Los Angeles and Orange counties will be hot and breezy in the morning, with temperatures hitting about 85.

The valleys and Inland Empire will see strong winds with a high of 88.

Beach communities will be warm, with 2-4 foot surf and a high of 83.

The mountain areas will be cooler, strong wind gusts and temperatures hitting about 50.

Desert communities will be warm and windy, with a high of 75.
