tonight for our westside valleys in southern oregon, the high desert in eastern lake county, and the shasta valley in central siskiyou county. overnight lows will be very mild in the 50s and 60s across the region. expect foggy conditions for coastal areas. tomorrow: big changes for your friday as a cold front will come through the area. winds will pick up into the afternoon and evening. the strongest winds will impact parts of siskiyou county and the klamath basin. those areas are under a fire weather watch for the afternoon into the evening. critical fire weather conditions will be in place due to the gusty winds and very low humidity. gusty winds at the surface and higher up in the improvements in the smoke and air quality as the day goes on from west to east. slightly cooler as well for your friday with highs in the 80s and 90s inland and across southern oregon until further notice. wildfires burning in the region will cause air quality levels to fluctuate and could be at unhealthy levels. no rain expected with this cold front but it'll be much cooler for your saturday with highs below average. temperatures look to warm back up sunday into early next week. fire danger remains extreme and if any fires do spark, they could spread quickly. hopefully you can enjoy some season, newswatch 12 is helping make-
