Forecast Discussion August 18 to 23: The marine layer is expected to deepen as an upper level low moves down from the north Tuesday. This will cool temperatures over the area with morning low clouds and patchy drizzle persisting along the coast. The passing low will foster good atmospheric mixing resulting in AQIs for ozone, PM2.5 and PM10 remaining in the GOOD air quality category. 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.
