* FORECAST DISCUSSION

NIPOMO CDF FORECAST ZONE

4/15/14 through 4/20/14 - 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 11 am to 7 pm, with dust impacts peaking from 1 pm to 5 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.
