September 16 through 19 The Central Coast is enjoying a reprieve from the many days of unhealthy AQI. As the trough to our west approaches, onshore flow has temporarily pushed the smoke to the east allowing for GOOD to MODERATE AQI for the remainder of this week. The marine layer persisting along the coast will keep fire activity low but in inland areas, where the marine layer is not present, this wind will reinvigorate the fire. Temps are expected to be seasonably warm for all areas. As the trough moves expect cooler temps for the remainder of the week. Smoke forecast shows this AQI reprieve continuing until the weekend. GOOD to MODERATE AQI for PM 2.5 with a chance of temporary UNHEALTHY FOR SENSITIVE GROUPS in some areas but for the most part we should have much improved AQI until weekend. Ozone and PM 10 is expected to be in the GOOD category.
