Today: Sunny and dry conditions with high temperatures near 78 degrees. Expect breezy conditions with winds near 10 mph from the north with gusts up to 20 mph. Due to the lower humidity and elevated winds, a fire weather remains a threat. Outdoor burning is not recommended.
Tonight: Clear skies with winds between 5 to 10 mph from the north. Lows will be in the mid 50s.
Tomorrow: More sunny and dry conditions with high temperatures around 82 degrees. Low humidity remains to allow it to feel comfortable outside during the day.
Beyond: Fall-like conditions will persist with high temperatures slightly increasing into the mid-to-upper 80s by next week as a small ridge builds over the area. Dry air will remain for much of the next 7-days. The dry airmass will suppress any chance of precipitation.
