September's cooler-than-normal start continues today, but hopefully no one is complaining too much! Plentiful morning sunshine has again given way to some increase in clouds this afternoon thanks to the sun heating the surface. Once we head into evening clouds will diminish as things begin to cool off again. Highs that are topping out mainly in the upper 70s will fall back through the 70s prior to sunset. Another fantastic evening for outdoor plans.

Through Tonight: Another cool night upcoming, but probably a little warmer than last night. Sunset temperatures falling through the low 70s will bottom out from the lower 50s in the cooler suburbs to around 60 downtown.

Tomorrow (Thursday): Our nice spell of weather continues Thursday. We see mostly sunny skies again, with some afternoon clouds possible. Highs rise to the upper 70s to around 80. Winds remain light mainly from the northeast.

California Fires: Fires, including the very large Station Fire in Southern California, continue today but signs are positive from the region for now. The Station Fire has grown to over 140,000 acres, much of that growth occurring during the weekend (check out amazing time-lapse imagery from Saturday) into yesterday morning. It's a bit early for the typical fire season in the area, which usually is during the fall when Santa Ana winds occur more often. However, years of drought have made much of the region primed to burn.
