October 21 to 26 – The high pressure system that brought offshore flow and above normal temperatures across the region is gradually nudged eastward out of the area as a fairly deep trough pushes in from the Pacific. This will allow a return of onshore flow with lower temperatures and a slight chance of rain next week. Pollution dispersion should remain good as this progressive pattern unfolds allowing air pollution levels for ozone, PM2.5 and PM10 in the GOOD air category of EPA’s Air Quality Index (AQI).
