Cold front brings windy conditions, below-average temperatures to California Tuesday

A cold front will provide below-average temperatures for the region.

Cooler temperatures and windy conditions are expected for portions of California Tuesday.

With what has felt like an oven for most of the summer, the below-average temperatures are a nice fall feel for residents throughout the Golden State.  

A cold front, currently situated over central California, will provide below-average temperatures for the region.

The cold front will continue to move south throughout the day. Not only will it bring cooler temperatures, but it will also provide gusty winds. The Mojave Desert could see gusts up to 70 mph. 

Because of the gusty winds, a Wind Advisory is in effect for several counties across the southern part of California. 

For northern California, Fire Weather Warnings are in effect because of the windy conditions.

Wildfire smoke continues to spread into southern California through the rest of Tuesday. Smoke near the surface will be present, which will decrease air quality throughout the region.
