Current Air Quality & Forecast


Air Quality Forecast

September 25 to September 28 Smoke from the wildfires in the Pacific Northwest has left the region, bringing GOOD AQIs. The strong front moving southeastward may bring light rain Monday evening/Tuesday morning to the Santa Cruz mountains, along with isolated gusty winds. North of our region, in the Pacific Northwest, this low pressure system is bringing moderate to heavy rains, which should significantly reduce fires burning there and reduce smoke impacts throughout California. Expect seasonal temperatures, with coastal temps ranging from the low 50s to the upper 70s, and inland temps ranging from the low 50s to the mid 80s. Seasonal temperatures suggest GOOD air quality for Ozone, and lack of high winds in the Salinas Valley suggest no significant dust impacts and thus air quality for PM10 may remain GOOD.
