Mostly Mild Monday

Air Quality (as of 8 AM)
GOOD for all reporting

WEATHER STORY
Smoke from large wildfires in Northern California moves slowly eastward due to upper level winds. A wave of monsoonal moisture is possible for the southeastern viewing area while most locations remain warm and dry for the duration of the week due to the slow build-up of high pressure.

Monday: Temperatures across inland and coastal areas remain seasonable with little change in comparison to Sunday's conditions. Smoke from northern wildfires isn't expected to harm air quality today.

Overnight: Nighttime low temperatures inland will be in the low 50's with coastal areas looking at mid to high 50's after sunset.

Extended: Very little variation is expected with regards to temperatures this week; a slight warm up may arrive on Wednesday but will not change conditions dramatically.
