Although the smoke and haze remain from our area fires, the air quality has improved. It isn't as dangerous, but it's still unhealthy for most people in most areas. We can expect more haze and smoke tonight and tomorrow with slightly stronger breezes. Tonight will be a hazy night with clear sky above the blanket of smoke. Lows will range from the 30s and 40s in the mountains to the 50s and 60s in the foothills and valley. Highs on Wednesday will be slightly cooler than Tuesday and seasonable for the middle of September. Under a hazy sky we can expect highs in the 80s and 90s for all areas from the mountains to the foothills and the valley.
A trough of low pressure will slowly move from the eastern Pacific over the Pacific Northwest and northern California late Wednesday through early Saturday. Unfortunately, it will bring stronger wind to our area, which will make the fire danger worse. There are chances for light rain showers and isolated thunderstorms, but only light rain will fall and it won't be very widespread. The strongest wind will blow on Thursday and Friday, with breezy weather late Wednesday and early Saturday. Our weather pattern will become quieter Sunday and early next week. Highs will fall from the 80s and lower 90s to the 70s and lower 80s before rebounding next week.
