Air Quality Index Information

The above map reflects the most recent Air Quality Index (AQI) for today at each of the air monitoring stations. Station data is refreshed at the top of every hour, but may not be shown immediately due to data transfer and verification limitations. The AQI represents a weighted rolling average concentration over 24 hours for PM10 and PM2.5; and 8 hours for Ozone.

May 02 to June 07- As we move into this weekend, relatively high-pressure will influence weather over the Monterey Bay and bring sunny daytime conditions with clouds and fog impacting coastal and inland valleys during the night and early morning hours. This will coincide with a warming trend on Saturday and Sunday. As the high-pressure ridge gives way to a low-pressure trough early next week, cloudy conditions will reestablish and deliver cooler temperatures. There is a slight chance of precipitation during this time, however confidence remains low. Expect weekend temperatures to range from the low 70s to the upper 40s on the coast and mid 80s to the upper 40s inland. Moving into next week, expect temperatures to range from the low 60s to the upper 40s on the coast and upper 70s to the lower 50s inland. Low pressure and subsequent good ventilation should facilitate GOOD AQIs for the region. PM2.5, PM10, and Ozone are all expected to remain GOOD during this time.
