    On a clear (hot) day

    As the Santa Ana winds blow, so does the heat and the air quality. Claremont has been blessed with 100 degree heat recently, but also a series of crystal clear days. Such was the case Monday during sunset looking north at Claraboya (from 274 feet) and the San Gabriel Mountains. The weather for the week will cool off to more seasonal mid-80 degree highs, with our nights slowly getting cooler into the 50s by week's end. No rain is in the forecast, but the air quality will remain good. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger
