Oct 21-24, 2019 As high-pressure returns this week expect dry and warm conditions in all areas throughout the week. Temperatures expected to be in the 70s for coastal and 80s for inland areas with temperatures increasing as the week progresses. Offshore wind is also expected Monday continuing until midweek with wind speeds increasing each day. Cooling returns this weekend. All areas will still have cool overnight temperatures which may increase PM 2.5 in valleys and basins due to wood burning device use and wintertime inversion. Inland areas may see an increase in PM10 with these dry and windy conditions but otherwise, GOOD AQI status is expected in all remaining areas.
