June 24 to 29 – The strong high pressure ridge that brought warm to hot temperatures last weekend will again spread westward from the 4-Corners area resulting in seasonably warm to hot temperatures through the weekend and into next week. The warm air mass will stabilize as the high is re-established which will suppress dispersion of air pollutants causing air pollution levels to rise somewhat over the region. As a result air quality for PM2.5 and ozone may reach the upper GOOD to MODERATE categories of EPA’s Air Quality Index (AQI), particularly over the inland stations. Ozone levels at Pinnacles National Park, where the area’s highest ozone levels are typically recorded, can be expected to continue reaching the upper MODERATE category during this time. With hot, dry and occasionally breezy conditions in place over the central and southern Salinas Valley, PM10 levels can be expected to continue reaching the MODERATE AQI category at King City due to afternoon windblown fugitive dust.
