Hazy and Hot to Start the Week

TONIGHT: Hazy skies will look to stay for not only this past weekend, but for much of the week as well. This makes the air quality a little unsafe, so please limit your time outdoors if you can. Temperatures are going to cool down tonight but only down to the high 50's and low 60's. Winds should take a break once the sun goes down and remain calm overnight. We do see some tiny light rain showers across the area that will remain until sunset.

TOMORROW: Hot temperatures remain and ramp back up. High's should be expected to be in the mid 90's. We will have another blanket of smoke overhead to block the sunshine from directly coming through. No rain chances are expected and the winds should be a lot more calmer between 5-10 mph.

LONG TERM: The high temperatures that are expected to remain over average and stick to the 90's throughout the week. The hazy skies look to be lasting for a little bit of time as well continuing into the week. Rain chances though will make a comeback. We don't see major rain chances on the way, but Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday each feature a 10% chance of rain that could be increased when we get closer to those days.
