Warm & sunny through Tuesday then windy & cooler Wednesday through Friday. Nice weather next weekend.

Posted: Oct 17, 2020 6:46 PM

Today was another warm one with many cities 15-20 degrees above average and some 2-4 degrees away from record values. Air quality remains good and the sunshine continues. Winds were strong with a Red Flag Warning remaining in place for some this morning but it is now expired.

A ridge of high pressure will remain over the East Pacific until Tuesday or Wednesday which means we'll remain warm in the low-90s and sunny. Winds will not be strong through Tuesday.

On Wednesday a trough of low pressure will shift south over Washington, Oregon & Idaho. This will lead to cool and windier weather. Fire danger is in the forecast Wednesday-Friday due to strong winds. We'll also cool each day as the jet stream dips farther and farther south towards us. Valley highs on Wednesday will be in the upper-80s, low-80s on Thursday then mid-to-upper 70s on Friday. We'll remain in the mid-70s on Saturday with increased cloud cover on Friday and Saturday.

Its possible winds could pick up again as the system exits the region.
