* FORECAST DISCUSSION

NIPOMO CDF FORECAST ZONE

7/29/15 through 8/01/15 - Blowing Dust: Some blowing dust may occur; however, the AQI is forecasted to remain in the good category. Extremely sensitive individuals with existing respiratory or heart conditions may experience adverse health effects and may need to take appropriate precautions. The general public likely will not experience symptoms.

8/2/15 - 8/3/15 - Blowing Dust - Better Breathers Alert: Air quality is forecasted to be unhealthy for very sensitive persons due to blowing dust and sand. An increase in PM10 & PM2.5 is forecasted to occur from 10 am to 7 pm, with dust impacts peaking from noon pm to 6 pm. Reschedule outdoor activities to occur when there is no visible dust. Very sensitive individuals such as infants, as well as children and adults with existing respiratory or heart conditions may experience adverse health effects during blowing dust periods. If blowing dust and sand is visible in the air, County officials recommend all adults and children avoid strenuous outdoor activity, remain indoors as much as possible, and set any heating/air conditioning/ventilation systems to recirculation. The public is advised to consult your doctor if you are experiencing health problems in an area with blowing dust and sand. If staying indoors does not provide relief, temporarily leaving the area and going to a location where the sand is not blowing and dust is not visible is advised.

RED HILLS, CARRIZO PLAINS, PASO ROBLES & ATASCADERO FORECAST ZONES

7/29/15 - 7/30/15: Ozone - Better Breathers Alert for the Eastern San Luis Obispo County, including the Carrizo Plains and Red Hills Forecast Zones: Ozone concentrations will increase significantly midday, afternoon and evening across the Carrizo Plains and the Eastern San Luis Obispo County mountains, including Red Hills. The Paso Robles & Atascadero Forecast Zones are forecasted to have higher than normal ozone concentrations in the afternoons, but the air quality is forecasted to remain in the good range. People who are sensitive to air pollution should limit time outside during midday, afternoon and early evening. During periods of high ozone, health impacts of ozone air pollution can be minimized by reducing strenuous activities and staying indoors. San Luis Obispo County residents are encouraged to reduce emission causing activities by limiting vehicle use and the use of products that contribute to the formation of ozone.
