Wednesday Night: Tonight we will see mostly clear skies but Smokey overcast and lows in the mid to low 50s. Mild winds out of the Southwest at 5 to 15 MPH and gusts up to 20 MPH are helping to push the moderate smoke up into the Valley. Fog is expected on the coast tonight but we will see a light haze in the morning due to wildfires smoke still lingering in the valley.
Thursday: Will be the last day of mostly sunny skies and warmer temperatures across the region. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s. We will see light winds out of the Southwest with steering flow winds aloft out of the South. This will help to keep Smoke in the air most of the day and into the evening. Clouds will start to build into the region in the evening as a storm system starts to push into the region.
Weekend: We are tracking a powerful upper level storm system and cold front set to move into the region Friday evening. This system is the one we have waited all Summer for! It looks to bring an 80% chance of showers and storms to the region Friday night through Sunday morning. Latest data suggest we could see as much as 1.5 inches of Rain on the Coast and as much as a half in in Valley locations. We will also see mostly cloudy skies and highs only in the mid to low 70s. Simply put, get ready for a cloudy cool and most importantly wet weekend!
