Mostly sunny skies will stick around throughout Thursday, with the mercury returning to the 30s before falling into the mid-teens overnight.

Clouds and a chance of showers arrive both Saturday and Sunday, along with cooler air that will drop daytime highs into the low-to-mid-20s for the first time since mid-June.

Sunshine will return next week, though, will temperatures reaching the upper 20s and eventually the low 30s.

Smoke is expected to clear substantially through the period, with a westerly influence keeping the worst of the poor air quality out of the area.
