Smoke from wildfires triggers another air quality advisory

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has issued an air quality advisory for Wednesday because smoke from wildfires across Northern California is expected to move into the region.   

The air district has issued a series of the air quality advisories in recent weeks due to the wildfires burning, and said Wednesday's forecast is for hazy and smoky conditions in the North Bay especially. 

Wildfire smoke and a change in the wind pattern triggers air quality alert in the Bay Area for Wednesday, Sept. 15, 2021. 

However, air quality is expected to not get bad enough to exceed federal health standards and prompt a Spare the Air alert and wood burning ban, according to the district.

Anyone who smells smoke is advised to stay inside with windows and doors closed, and to set their air conditioning and car vent systems to re-circulate air to prevent outside air from getting inside.
