Although we have sunshine above, the haze and smoke settled over most of northern California as expected. This will be the case for Labor Day weekend... haze and smoke at times, some blue sky, but not crystal-clear weather. High pressure building over northern California will mean fairly quiet weather for much of the holiday weekend. We will have a mostly clear to clear sky tonight with areas of haze and smoke. Lows will range from the 30s and 40s in the mountains to the 50s and 60s in the valley and foothills. Saturday will be a sunny day with varying areas of haze and smoke for most of northern California. Highs will range from the 80s in the mountains and foothills to the mid and upper 90s in the valley.
Sunday will be slightly hotter than Saturday for our area with more haze and smoke drifting along with our light breezes. A trough of low pressure will form off the West Coast and move toward California on Labor Day. We'll have more clouds, but they will do little to cool us down. The trough will move over northern California next Tuesday, but at this point it appears we'll only get stronger breezes from it. After a brief break Wednesday, another trough should delivers more breezes next Thursday and stronger wind next Friday along with a cooldown. Valley lows will remain warmer than average through next week in the 60s. Valley highs will climb into the upper 90s and lower 100s this weekend before cooling next week.
