For additional forecast details, check the News link on the Air Districts homepage at Given the combined uncertainties of weather, smoke and wildfire behavior, the forecasts should be regarded as guidelines which are subject to change. Therefore, use discretion as conditions change. If smoke degrades the air you are breathing, please use good judgement by avoiding physical exertion and exercise; and consider either sheltering in place with your windows and doors closed, or leaving the area until conditions improve. If you experience adverse effects, contact your doctor.
