It was another day of widespread smoke over California and most of the West Coast as numerous large fires continue to burn, and very little wind has been blowing lately to push it elsewhere. Saturday will be similar, with changes beginning unday. Tonight will be another smoky night with clear sky above the smoke layer. Lows will range from the 30s and 40s in the mountains to the 50s and 60s in the foothills and valley. Air quality will continue to be unhealthy to hazardous for essentially all areas on Saturday with a mix of smoke and a little sunshine. Highs will be slightly warmer than today, ranging from the 80s to the lower 90s for both the mountains and the lower elevations.

A small disturbance will approach the Pacific Northwest on Sunday and that will allow stronger breezes to blow. Those breezes may allow some of our smoke to dissipate. An area of low pressure will park itself off the West Coast during the first half of next week, and that will slowly move onshore by Wednesday. We can expect more breezy to windy weather most of next week, with the strongest wind possible on Wednesday and Thursday. Although there is a slight chance for light rain showers and thunderstorms, more wind than rain is in the forecast through next Friday. Highs will begin to decrease starting on Sunday. Most highs will be in the 80s, ome lower 90s possible Sunday.

A cold front has moved over northern California on this day before Thanksgiving, and it brought light rain and snow showers to the higher terrain, gusty wind and cooler air for all. Thanksgiving will still be breezy, but also mild and pleasant.
