Forecast Discussion March 10 to March 15: As a cold front exits the region this morning and high pressure is re-established along the West Coast, we will see a return to pleasant daytime temperatures and clear skies. Expect mostly GOOD air quality during the forecast period, however, nighttime surface temperatures in the low to mid 40s could cause temperature inversions Wednesday through Friday nights possibly leading to MODERATE air quality in some of the inland valleys, especially the San Lorenzo, due to the use of wood stoves and fireplaces.
On "Marginal" days, it is a No Burn day except for the following types of burns:
All Burns must receive a separate "daily authorization" from the permitting agency (fire agency or Air District) prior to conducting the burn.
All other burns, contact the Air District at 831-647-9411 prior to burning.
Note: The Air District may declare a "Marginal" day as a "No Burn" day if weather conditions are limited in providing dispersion of pollutants.
