Posted: Aug 27, 2018 6:47 AM

We've got some very welcome changes on the way for your last week of August. Cooler temperatures, improved air quality, and overall mild conditions are in store for your Monday. Temperatures have dipped into the 50's to 60's in the valley overnight, and into the 40's to 50's in the mountains this morning. Winds are mostly out of the Northeast to around 8mph to start the day, but will shift to become out of the South to 10mph this afternoon. A few thin clouds will track across our region today and the haze from the active wild fires will continue to impact air quality. Air quality is quite a bit better for the start of your Monday and is mostly in the moderate range for the start of the work week. The area directly surrounding the Carr Fire is the only area in the unhealthy for sensitive groups range this morning. Humidity is projected to dip into the 20 to 35 percent range this afternoon. Temperatures will climb into the mid to high 80's in the valley today and into the 70's to mid 80's in the mountains. Overall, today looks like a very comfortable day for late August.

Cooler weather systems will continue to track through the Pacific Northwest this week, and that will keep our temperatures around or below average. Mid to high 80's are in store for the start of the week, then there will more than likely be another subtle dip in temperatures on Wednesday through Friday. Most valley areas will be in the low to mid 80's for the middle to latter part of the week, while mountain areas mostly end up in the 70's. There is a slight chance for some isolated sprinkles popping up in the mountains mid week, but most of the active weather will be staying well to our North through your extended forecast. Another modest warming trend will return for the end of your week and weekend. Valley areas will end up back in the high 80's to low 90's on Saturday and Sunday. Your Labor Day Weekend forecast looks to be mild and warm!
