Northwest winds will bring in dry, slightly cooler air today behind yesterday’s cold front.

Clouds are likely this morning and a stray shower may even be possible. Gradually, the clouds will burn off, and some sunshine will result.

The afternoon will have a mix of sun and clouds with a background of hazy wildfire smoke. Much like the last few days, this smoke will only have a slight impact on air quality.

Skies will clear late in the day, not including the lingering smoke, only to have thin clouds build in through the evening and overnight hours.

Northwest winds will blow steadily but lightly with speeds just over 5 mph.

Temperatures will rise into the mid and upper 70s this afternoon. Evening temperatures will slip back to around 60 degrees, and overnight lows will end up in the low 50s.
