“Mini-Santa Ana”…you must be from California…or maybe Baja!
The Santa Ana winds are strong, extremely dry offshore winds that characteristically sweep through Southern California and northern Baja California in late fall and winter. They can range from hot to cold, depending on the prevailing temperatures in the source regions, the Great Basin and upper Mojave Desert. The winds are known for the hot dry weather (often the hottest of the year) that they bring in the fall, and are infamous for fanning regional wildfires.

52 degrees @ Airport !! We got a "mini-Santa Ana" goin' on folks. As high elevation winds kick up big between 4:53 & 5:53 & reach airport, they heat up & dry out as they fall in elevation. Airport goes from 47 to 52 degrees & RH drops from 71 to 57%.
