Forecast Discussion July 24 to July 29: High pressure expands westward from the 4-Corners area, leading to warmer temperatures along the coast and hot temperatures inland. Mid to upper level clouds may move over the area late in the weekend as yet another round of monsoonal moisture rotates in from the Desert SW. Although most areas should continue to experience GOOD air quality, as the atmosphere warms and stabilizes, the hotter inland areas such as Pinnacles National Park may see ozone related AQIs reach the MODERATE air quality category. PM2.5 levels over the inland areas may also reach the upper GOOD to lower MODERATE category during this time. Please be aware that due to the extraordinarily dry conditions caused by the long-term drought, Cal Fire has SUSPENDED OPEN BURNING in the State Responsibility Areas of Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Benito Counties. During these extremely dry conditions, residents are also cautioned about the high risk of causing a wildfire when starting any kind of fire near dry grass and brush.

Please be advised that, due to fire safety concerns, CAL FIRE has suspended all open burning in State Responsibility Areas and Local Responsibility Areas under contract to CAL FIRE until further notice. Under this ban, with the approval from the responsible fire protection agency, agricultural and prescribed burn permits may be authorized. If you have any questions or need further information, please contact the Air District @ (831) 647-9411.
