More warm weather with light smoke

Happy loosen your tie Friday! Find an excuse to cut loose and enjoy the calm, warm and dry weather pattern because wetter conditions are headed our way starting Monday and carrying on through next week!

The Pacific Northwest is still under the influence of a ridge of high pressure keeping the region on the warmer side through the weekend with our hottest day likely being Saturday as weekend highs reach into the 80s for one last time as we head into October.

Due to prescribed burns in the area, we do have some light smoke to contend with locally. Air quality is moderate to good throughout most of the region and looks likely to clear up by Monday as some new moisture rolls into the area.

Winds will be moderate today but perhaps slightly more noticeable than yesterday during the afternoon timeframe, picking up to the 10-15mph range with gusts of 18-20mph possible in the northern part of our forecast area.

Temps continue to creep higher today, in the upper 70s and low 80s with overnight lows in the upper 30s and low 40s. Have a fantastic Friday!
