Forecast Discussion: Discussion for February 2 to 7 – Following cool, breezy and dry conditions on Monday, models now depict a pair of weak weather systems passing through the area Tuesday and Wednesday. Models continue to indicate that these will be followed by the development of a strong ridge through the rest of the week producing dry conditions and warmer temperatures. The windy and unstable conditions have scoured most pollutants from the area with AQIs for PM2.5, PM10 and ozone generally over most of the region in the GOOD air quality category of EPA’s Air Quality Index (AQI). Light winds also reached the valley floor in the San Lorenzo Valley Smoke Sensitive Area (SLV SSA) helping to disperse residential wood smoke and improve PM2.5 air quality to the GOOD category. However, with winds diminishing and a cold dry air mass now in place, PM2.5 AQIs in the SLV SSA can be expected to increase into the MODERATE category starting Tuesday due to the build-up of residential wood smoke. Wood burners can minimize the impact of their smoke on neighbors by following best management practices for burning including using dry seasoned wood, not over packing the fire box and building a hot efficient fire.
