Despite winds calming down, fire weather concern for Northern and Southern California continues Wednesday. As crews continue to work towards full containment of the Camp Fire in Butte County, winds are diminishing which in turn does away with critical fire. In Southern California, a Red Flag Warning for Ventura and Los Angeles Counties will expire at 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, but fire danger will persist in those areas as low humidity continues with dry conditions.

Back on the Central Coast, some cloud coverage is in the forecast throughout the morning and afternoon hours. Air quality is rated as “good” for both San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties, despite the hazy and smoke that made way into San Luis Obispo Tuesday.

As high pressure continues to dominate, temperatures for the coastal and inland valleys and beaches will continue to be around the mid to upper 70s. Overnight lows are staying close to the 30s for the interior portions, which will produce some morning frost.

Rain is still in the forecast for next week. Models are in agreement that precipitation is likely towards Thanksgiving and could continue to bring some wet conditions into the very beginning of the following week.
