From NOAA:

POSSIBLE WEATHER PATTERN CHANGE NEXT WEEK COULD BRING RAIN TO THE RECENT BURN SCARS IN SOUTHWEST CALIFORNIA…

It remains very early for forecast accuracy, however, many computer models suggest that a couple of weak storm systems could impact southwest California next week beginning Wednesday into Thanksgiving Day, and then possibly Friday. The bulk of any rainfall looks to be highest along the central coast (San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties) during this period. There remains a potential for a stronger system for all areas late Saturday to Sunday, Nov. 24-25. Details on timing, rainfall amounts, and intensities vary greatly at this time, but confidence is increasing that rain will occur. There will be a small potential for heavy rain, especially when a storm system moves into the region Saturday to Sunday.  

Given the recent wildfires and those that are still burning today, we are compelled to get the word out about the potential for any sign of rain in the near future. At this time, it does appear rain may develop mid-week and at times through the  Thanksgiving holiday. We realize that the focus right now is on recovery and repopulating areas impacted by the Woolsey and Hill Fires, but once the fires are out another immediate danger exists for people living below burned hillsides. The potential for debris flows near and below recent burn areas will be likely if heavy rain materializes next weekend. It is very important to keep aware of upcoming storms and to educate the public on the dangers of debris flows.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
Slick roadways due to oily build-up and prolonged dry conditions
Clogged drains and culverts from leaf litter and other debris
Traffic delays and congestion in addition to heavy holiday travel
Mud and debris flows in and near recent burn scars if higher rain rates develop

FORECAST CONFIDENCE
Moderate confidence in rain occurring, Wednesday to Friday, and then Saturday to Sunday, Nov. 24-25.

LACoFD reports, Although the fire has not directly impacted Topanga, the threat of a wildfire due to wind reversal after the Santa Ana's subside remains a concern. The wind reversal will test our fire lines and validate our fire behavior prediction to declare the area safe. Unified Commanders are constantly evaluating the Malibu Fire area and while smoke is no longer visible we need to ensure infrastructure is safe for you to  return.

Assistant Chief Anthony Williams explains  the situation in the Monte Nido, Piuma Road, and Topanga areas:

https://twitter.com/i/status/1063220674221592576

LACoFD and LASD WILL MEET TOMORROW MORNING @08:00 for final validation of wind conditions for repopulation of Topanga Canyon.  

Upon final validation, Topanga should begin repopulation several hours later.

----------------------------------------------------

November 15 10:16 AM -

Please note the SUMMIT POINTE NEIGHBORHOOD OFF VIEWRIDGE HAS BEEN REPOPULATED.

It was not specifically called out in the repopulation alerts, that was an oversight, but is in Zone 1 and All Zone 1 residents have been repopulated.

----------------------------------------------------

November 15 9:07 AM -

****Topanga WILL NOT BE REPOPULATED TODAY****


LACoFD and LASD have deemed that conditions are still too unsafe to allow residents to return.


TCEP is working on getting information about when the canyon will be opened and will be meeting this afternoon with LACoFD and LASD Command to discuss repopulation.

Evacuation orders are not taken lightly. Safety for the community is the no! priority. Evacuation orders are complex decisons and are not just a question of looking at fire & weather.
