Oct 14-17, 2019 The week will start with warm daytime temperatures through Tuesday. Starting Wednesday a cold front is expected to move through northern CA just north of Santa Cruz mountains. Depending on how far south this cold front will extend there is a slight chance of minor precipitation on Thursday. On the backside of that front we can expect chilly temperatures and brisk wind starting Thursday and possibly lingering through the weekend. Nighttime temperatures remain chilly. Cooler overnight temperatures increase fireplace and wood stove use bringing wood smoke back into neighborhoods and communities especially those into low lying areas. However, windy conditions should mean favorable mixing which is good for air quality. Overall air quality is expected to be GOOD throughout the district.
