Air Quality Forecast + Agricultural Burn Status



VCAPCD Smoke Advisory for November 15 - 16, 2018

A sea breeze will develop this afternoon and may bring some smoke from the Woolsey Fire back inland. This will mostly impact the cities in and around the coastal plains. Please keep in mind that smoke concentrations can vary hour by hour and change frequently. Forecast AQI colors are meant to be as representative as possible for the 24-hr day. At times, air quality is likely to be better or worse than is indicated for the full day. Air quality should be considered unhealthy in areas directly impacted by smoke. If you are in an area directly impacted by smoke, please exercise extreme caution and avoid vigorous outdoor or indoor exertion. People with respiratory or heart disease, the elderly, and children should remain indoors. Run your air conditioner if you have one. Keep the filter clean and fresh air intake closed. Close all windows and doors that lead outside to prevent bringing additional dust inside. If this is not an option or it becomes extremely hot inside, please seek alternate shelter.
