Warming out of the Weekend

Air Quality Report (As of 11:00AM)
All reporting stations are good.

High pressure rapidly builds in with gusty winds on Sunday with offshore flow continuing for most of next week. Temperatures will head back above normal by Monday and remain there for the rest of the week—along with sunny and very dry conditions. It seems likely that fires to our north and east will continue burning next week and thus, smoke will likely return to our skies as well.

Sunday: A few morning low clouds, then sunny. Warmer, with coastal highs in the upper 60s to upper 70s and mid-70s to mid-80s inland. Breezy at times over the hills.

Overnight: Mostly clear. Expect coastal lows in the mid to upper 50s with upper 40s to low 50s inland.

Monday: Mostly sunny skies and warm as offshore winds develop. Highs will be in the 70s-80s on the coast with 80s-90s inland.

Tuesday: Clear skies with a little bit of haze possible. Highs will be even warmer with 70s-80s on the coast and 80s to upper 90s inland.
Extended: Offshore winds may be gusty at times, especially over the hills. Flow will decrease but will remain lightly offshore for most of the rest of the week. Temperatures will remain above normal for most of next week. It is also likely that smoke will present for most of next week too.
