The Air District is issuing an air quality advisory beginning Friday, August 3, through the weekend in the Bay Area. The Bay Area will likely experience smoke impacts from the Mendocino Complex Fire and other wildfires. 

Spare the Air Status

Intermittent northerly winds may blow smoke into the North Bay and potentially other parts of the region. Due to active wildfires and changing wind patterns, air quality throughout the Bay Area could be impacted through the weekend.

A Spare the Air Alert is not likely to be called because air quality is not expected to exceed federal standards.

If the smell of smoke is present, it is important that Bay Area residents protect their health by avoiding exposure. If possible, stay inside with windows and doors closed until smoke levels subside. Set air conditioning units and car vent systems to re-circulate to prevent outside air from moving inside.
