Fairly typical late summer/early fall weather is ahead as high pressure across the west trades places with troughing, leading to a gradual cool-down; fall officially arrives on Tuesday. Expect mostly sunny skies out there today with areas of haze and drift smoke. A little breezy during the afternoon with west to southwest winds 5-15mph and highs in the mid-70's. A trough moving inland to our north Monday into Tuesday will pull daytime temps into the lower 70's with overnight lows dropping in the 30's. With the stronger onshore flow, we'll also experience gusty southwest winds 10-20mph at times, especially during the afternoons. Weak ridging aloft will build through midweek, breaking down again towards the weekend, which will keep temperatures near to slightly above average and our forecast dry. Firefighters continue to make great progress on the El Dorado Fire, who have done an amazing job holding this thing south of Hwy 38. Protecting all homes in Forest Falls, Mountain Home Village & Angelus Oaks, as well Seven Oaks to the Big Bear Valley by stopping it at 38, a truly remarkable feat which we are all grateful! Total acres burned: 22,439 and 59% contained. This fire still poses no immediate threat to Big Bear, but residents are advised to be always be prepared!
