Look for lots of sunshine and slightly cooler temperatures today. Hopefully the wildfire smoke will push back to the East away from us.

Advisories: NONE AT THIS TIME.

high pressure ridge (“Arch shape with blue arrows ”) has brought back the sunshine and warmed us up. The big problem is the smoke that is being pushed at us from the East. A surface thermal trough of low pressure (induced by the warm temperatures) will push eastward cooling us a bit today and it will start to shove the smoke to the East away from us. A upper level trough of low pressure (“U” shape shaded ) in the Gulf of Alaska will push a cold front through between Saturday and Sunday, but will only bring us a few more clouds and cooler temperatures that will warm up again next week as high pressure returns.
