‘Spare the Air’ caution continues through Wednesday

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has issued an air quality advisory for the region for Wednesday because of smoke from a wildfire elsewhere in the state.

The advisory comes as weather forecasters warned of triple-digit temperatures in inland parts of the Bay Area Tuesday.

Hazy skies and the smell of smoke may be seen and smelled in certain parts of the region Wednesday, but pollution levels are not expected to exceed the 24-hour national standard that would prompt another Spare the Air alert. Air quality readings are available at baaqmd.gov/highs.
