Air quality is unhealthy across the valley, its raining ash iun some places, others are being forced to evacuate from one of numerous wildfires burning in our region.
The fires will continue to burn over the next few days and air quality will remain poor due to dense smoke unless you are west of all of the fires and along the coast, as winds are carrying the smoke from west to east. The valley is at least going to be a little cooler today with slightly higher humidity. Hopefully this wil help some firefighting efforts. Highs will be in the mid-to-upper 90s in the valley. The sun will remain dimmed by the smoke today. The cooler weather also comes from disturbances to our north.
We'll be in the upper-90s to low-100s over the weekend with no relief from the smoke or the heat in sight.
Next week there is a slight chance of dry thunderstorms Sunday night into Monday morning. This has the chance of starting additional fires and fanning the flames of current fires. Fingers crossed this does not happen, but I have to mention it since there is a possibility for this in the forecast, even if it is only a slight chance. Monday-Tuesday some could see low-90s in the valley but temperatures will alos depend on how dense the smoke becomes.
Upper-90s to low-100s returns mid-tolate week next week.
