A storm to our south has ushered in clouds, and cooler weather today. The cool down will continue into Wednesday, before we shift gear and get ready for another round of Santa Ana winds.

Wednesday will be the last cool day, before Santa Ana winds develop and bring a warm up.

Red Flag Warning has been issued for our valleys, foothills, and mountains from Thursday at 4am until Friday at 6pm. Relative humidity could drop into the single digits, the winds could gust between 30 to 50 mph, and temperatures will trend above normal through the weekend. The combination of winds and low humidity, plus very dry vegetation will elevate fire danger with concerns expected this weekend.

Winds will pick up overnight into Thanksgiving morning, and temperatures will soar to the 80s once again near the coast and inland.

Temperatures will begin to drop but only a few degrees on Sunday into early next week.

Wednesday's Highs:
Coast: 66-73°
Inland: 70-76°
Mountains: 61-68°
Deserts: 78-82°
