Short summary
Severe wind events in southern California create extreme fire hazards. Sundowner winds are local downslope winds in the Santa Ynez Mountains near Santa Barbara that often coincide with damaging fires. Here we produce a climatology of Sundowner winds and compare their seasonal occurrence and large-scale atmospheric patterns to the well-studied Santa Ana wind regime. We find that Sundowner winds are distinctly different from Santa Ana winds in terms of peak seasonality and synoptic structure.
Severe wind events in southern California create extreme fire hazards. Sundowner winds are local...
