Warmer weather with another round of Santa Ana winds expected on Thursday.

Thursday will be a warmer day with Santa Ana winds. Easterly winds will target our mountains and inland valleys with a Wind Advisory  in effect from 6am until 4pm Thursday. Northeasterly winds of 20 to 30mph and gusts over 50mph. Coastal communities will also feel the dry gusty winds averaging 15-30 mph.

Temperatures will gradually warm back into the 70s on Thursday and Friday. Despite the warm days, the nights will stay cool under clear skies.

We cool back down this weekend on Sunday, as another storm takes over much of the west coast. It brings a chance for showers, wind and mountain snow for Monday and Tuesday. Snow levels potentially dropping to 4,000 feet Tuesday night. Much of the west coast will feel the changes as colder air moves in, for a chance for much needed rainfall.

Thursday's Highs:
Coast: 68-74°
Inland: 62-72°
Mountains: 52-60°
Deserts: 70-75°
