November 15-20, 2018 With the high pressure ridge still in place expect chilly nights, warm and pleasant air temperatures and visible haze from smoke. Smoke generated from the Camp Fire continues to cause smoke impacts throughout our region with elevated AQI levels for PM 2.5. In addition, use of wood burning fireplaces/heating devices combined with the presence of Fall thermal inversions cause the smoke to stay close to the ground in our breathing space. Expect elevated AQI PM 2.5 levels of MODERATE to UNHEALTHY across the region, especially in the valleys and basins, through the weekend and possibly into early next week. Ozone in the Pinnacles area is expected to be GOOD but may slip into MODERATE. Hollister and King City may reach MODERATE to USG for PM 10.
