A First Alert Weather Alert was in effect through Thursday evening for impacts to air quality and visibility as a result of windblown dust. Gusty conditions were expected. Gusts could exceed 30 MPH in many of our more wind-prone areas.
As of 3:27PM, all levels of air quality from 'moderate' to 'hazardous' are being reported in the valley. This is also drastically impacting our visibility.
An Air Quality Alert has been issued by the South Coast AQMD for windblown dust. This will be in effect until 8AM Saturday.
We will continue see moderately gusty winds through the afternoon and evening, with winds tapering by tomorrow.
Looking ahead to tomorrow and Saturday, we are keeping a close eye on the chance for some light showers over the mountains and a sprinkle or two here on the valley floor.
Prepare for partly cloudy skies Friday, clearing throughout the day on Saturday. Temperatures will start to warm back up for the first weekend of fall, reaching the upper-90s for the start of the next work week.
