The concentration of smoke has reached levels of the Air Quality Index (AQI) that are MODERATE (yellow) or UNHEALTHY FOR SENSITVE GROUPS (orange) in some areas of the region. Air quality will be variable and unpredictable as conditions change depending on wind and fire activity. The Monterey Bay Air Resources District (MBARD) will continue to follow the situation and issue advisories when appropriate.
