Looking at a very nice weekend ahead for our first official fall weekend with above normal temperatures and dry weather expected through next week. Clear skies through this evening with areas of drift smoke as lows cool to the upper 30's and 40's. Mostly sunny skies on Saturday with highs in the mid to upper 70's, southwest winds 5-10mph. Sunday will be another nice day as we transition to an offshore flow with highs in the mid to upper-70's, east to northeast winds 5-15mph at times. Expect more of the same through next week as daytime temps remain in the 70's, while overnight lows drop into the 30's and 40's. With the offshore flow, we'll experience occasional northeast winds around 5-15mph at times, gusty below passes and canyons.
