An air quality alert will be in effect 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday for reduced air quality due to elevated pollution levels during a period of higher heat. The humidity will be slightly higher tomorrow. This combined with our dry environment can produce unhealthy air quality. 
NEW: Meaningful rain in the forecast for Monday - to create slippery conditions and some puddles. 

 
NOW: Calm, comfortable, and quiet with a few clouds.

 
NEXT: A beautiful weekend - warm on Saturday with a pop-shower, and a pleasant Sunday with partly sunny conditions.

TOMORROW: Mix of sun and clouds. A rogue stray shower is possible. They will only last 15-30 minutes if they do form. Highs near 84. Lows near 67.
