Monday: The winds continue...we had another wave move through last night which kicked the winds back up. Sustained winds will be between 20-30mph with gusts to 30-40mph. Mostly cloudy skies to start with partial clearing this afternoon to partly cloudy skies. Mild temps continue. High: 46° (Yellow for Winds)

Monday Night: High pressure will start to build in overnight tonight, and that means a few different things. It'll help FINALLY calm the winds down, it'll help dry out the region, it'll also bring inversion conditions (meaning fog for the mornings). Low: 32° (Green)

Tuesday: Patchy fog to start the morning (because of the inversion) then clearing to partly sunny skies for the afternoon. Winds become calm (3-5mph)! The ridge continues to build and become stronger. We will also start to switch from SW airflow to NW airflow...that'll slowly cool things back down this week. High: 46° (Green)
