Speech to Text for VIDEO FORECAST: Smoke Returns Monday Along With Storm Chances

Below is the closed-captioning text associated with this video. Since this uses automated speech to text spelling and grammar may not be accurate.

tonight: areas west of the cascades are seeing a break from the super smoky conditoins and some decent air quality. that will continue into tonight. lows tonight fall into the 50s and 40s. tomorrow: smoke from canadian and local wildfires will fill back into the region monday. an upper level disturbance will bring a chance of isolated thunderstorms in the cascades and basin monday afternoon and evening. highs will climb into the 80s and 90s inland with 60s along the coast. extended: more storm chances are expected tuesday for the cascades, basin and northern california. temperatures remain above- average throug midweek 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 by the end of next week, and also help to disperse more smoke. that could, in turn, help bring a break to some of the poor air quality. it's something we'll be watching closely in the coming days. a small craft advisory continues off the southern oregon coast until 5 am tuesday. fire danger remains extreme and if any fires do spark, they could spread quickly. so hopefully, that will not impact your plans too much. if you missed any of matt's forecast you can always head to
