Thanks to Wendy Pugh for the sunrise/skyline view from early today – flip side of last night’s reddened sunset, as the smoke from regional wildfires lingers in our area. Meanwhile, the heat warning is still in effect, and today’s expected to go into the 90s, so take good care of yourself and those you love. Now – here’s what else we can tell you about the day ahead:
