We continue on with a dry SW flow with very low humidity levels in the upper atmosphere. This could change a bit as the remnants of TS Eugene will slowly drift northward Tuesday. So we could pick up a few clouds then, but no real convection, as the atmosphere remains to too dry. Otherwise, temps at about seasonal with breezy afternoons this week.
As I mentioned in my radio broadcast last Friday, the Lion Fire is winding down. The progression of smoke has dropped off and the mop-up stage has begun.
