"here's a live look at ashland from the oregon shakespeare festival. "here's a live look at the caveman bridge in grants pass from taprock northwest grill. "here's a live look at the oregon coast from the port of brookings harbor. tonight: with winds picking up, some areas west of the cascades could see some less-smoky conditions and somewhat improved air quality into this evening. this will be less likely near wildfires themselves and for the eastside. overall quiet weather tonight with cooler overnight lows in the 50s and 40s. tomorrow: variable air quality tomorrow with generally smoky or hazy skies expected across the region. temperatures will be warmer tomorrow afternoon with many areas climbing into the 90s, especially, in our westside valleys. winds won't be as gusty tomorrow later in the day. extended: above average temperature and quiet weather continue into sunday. an upper level disturbance could touch off a thunderstorm in the cascades near crater and diamond lakes monday into tuesday. temperatures remain above average into next week with smoky skies and overall poor to bad air quality. later in the week, we're tracking a cold front that could bring a more substantial cool down to end next week and also help to disperse more smoke. that could in turn help bring a break to some of the really bad air quality. it's something we'll be watching closely in the coming days. an air quality alert remains in effect across southern oregon until further notice. wildfires burning in the region will cause air quality levels to fluctuate and could be at unhealthy to hazardous levels. a gale warning continues off the southern oregon coast until 11 pm saturday. gusts up to 45 knots along will steep, wind-driven seas between 7-11 feet will make for hazardous conditions. fire danger remains extreme and if any fires do spark, they could spread quickly. hopefully you can enjoy some of the upcoming weather. thanks.
