February 24 to 28, 2017 – A low pressure system will be sweeping down along the coast from the north and may bring rain Saturday evening. This will be followed again early next week with a longer period of cooler, drier air through the week. Cold temperatures at night will return so nighttime PM2.5 may increase. San Lorenzo Valley may experience MODERATE AQI from wood smoke in certain areas during the next few days, but in general pollution levels should remain low overall.
