AIR QUALITY FORECAST DISCUSSION

ALL FORECAST ZONES - SMOKE IMPACTS

San Luis Obispo County residents may experience periodic smoke impacts from wildfires outside of San Luis Obispo County. The AQI may be in the moderate range at times from an increase in particulate matter and ozone. The public is advised to consult your doctor if you are experiencing health problems.

CARRIZO PLAINS & RED HILLS FORECAST ZONES

10/14/2019 & 10/15/2019: Ozone - Better Breathers Alert: Atmospheric conditions are expected to be favorable for producing high ozone concentrations. Ozone concentrations are forecasted to increase significantly midday, afternoon and evening. People who are very 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. You can help prevent ozone pollution by sharing a ride, walking, riding a bicycle, taking your lunch to work, avoiding 'drive through' lanes, conserving energy and keeping your vehicles properly tuned.
