Through tonight: Another Tatooine-like sunset is on tap thanks to wildfire smoke from the western United States and Canada. There will be few clouds into the night, although that familiar haze will probably stick around. Lows will range from near 70 to the mid-70s. Winds will be light from the south.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Wake-up conditions will probably include hazy skies and poor air quality yet again.
Otherwise, mostly sunny, with clouds increasing during the heat of the day. A cold front moving into and through the area could spark some storms in the midday to afternoon. Any storm could be strong and offer a potential damaging wind risk. The best odds of widespread activity are probably south and east of the city. High temperatures will be near 90. Winds will turn to the northwest with time, blowing around five to 10 mph.
Dog days: Today was the 24th day at or above 90 in the city. Although we’ve had a relatively tame summer compared with some recent ones, that’s four above the current average to date. We should add another 90-plus day to the tally tomorrow before a small break begins Thursday.
