This forecast area is experiencing smoke impacts from the northern fires as well as from the Woodward fire. Yesterday’s air quality in Novato was very unhealthy with periods of hazardous. Unfortunately this pattern will likely persist through tomorrow. Communities near the fire and the Lucas Valley area will also see periods of dense smoke. The Bay area saw mostly moderate air quality yesterday with periods of USG and can expect similar impacts today and tomorrow.
In areas experiencing sustained dense smoke even healthy people may start feeling effects from the smoke. Limit outdoor activities and look out for one another.
