Butte County, Calif.-- Seasonal temperatures this weekend, then hot and dry next week, with widespread triple digit highs in the Central Valley by mid-week.

Smoke from the Carr Fire and Mendocino Complex fires will continue to impact air quality.

Dry air moves in from the southwest through the evening, and we can see the impacts in air quality from areas burning around
the Carr and Mendocino Complex fires.

The Ranch Fire in the Mendocino Complex is particularly active with breezy winds and low humidity, and a large smoke plume can be seen using the radar and satellite images.

Many Valley locations are reporting a mid-level smoke, raining ash across areas like Chico and Paradise.

We'll see westerly winds continue from Saturday afternoon into the evening, picking up across the mountain areas, and low humidity.

Red Flag Warnings will continue through 11 p.m.

Another system bringing more breezy conditions Sunday night.

Pretty seasonable temperatures this weekend with highs in the 90s across the valley and lower foothills, and 70s to 80s over the mountains.

The upper ridge over the Southwest right now will make it's way northward early next week, bringing with it triple digits again by Tuesday and into the rest of the work week.
