Forecast Discussion:

This morning, water vapor satellite shows a prominent ridge of high pressure sitting just off the West Coast. This ridge will shift eastward and be centered directly over the state late Wednesday into Thursday, resulting in a warming trend, with afternoon high temperatures in the 100-104 degree range tomorrow through at least Saturday.

Mainly light winds are expected with this pattern through Wednesday; however, southerly breezes may increase slightly, especially on Thursday, as a weak disturbance tries to move the high eastward. This slight pattern shift may also introduce a few high clouds into the region late Thursday into Friday.

As for air quality, with the southerly flow through the period, expecting ozone to remain in the Good AQI category. Also, with no strong winds in the forecast, expecting PM-10 and PM-2.5 to stay in the Good AQI category.
