Cloud skies with morning drizzle Tuesday morning, temperatures will trend about 5 to 10 degrees below normal.

Expect smoky skies as the winds push smoke from wildfires burning in Northern California south. Air quality shouldn't be impacted as smoke will stay in the upper levels of the atmosphere.

We will have another chance at drizzle Tuesday night into early Wednesday, with gusty westerly winds in the mountains and deserts ranging from 25 to 35 mph.

Winds shift to a mild Santa Ana pattern Wednesday night into Thursday ushering in more sunshine, as well as dry and breezy conditions. Fire danger will be elevated not only due to the winds but also the warming temperatures, the main concern will be on Thursday.

Temperatures be much warmer for the end of the week, with 80s near the coast mid to upper 90s inland, and 80s in the mountains. The warmer weather will stick around into the weekend.

As we prepare for more Santa Ana winds, now is a good time to ensure you have defensible space around your home, go over your evacuation plan with your family and ensure your emergency kit is ready to go.

Tuesday's Highs:
Coast: 68-72°
Inland: 74-80°
Mountains: 69-80°
Deserts: 93-97°
