AQI: Good (0 - 50) AQI: Good (0 - 50)
Air quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk.
AQI: Moderate (51 - 100) AQI: Moderate (51 - 100)
Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.
AQI: Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (101 - 150) AQI: Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (101 - 150)
Although general public is not likely to be affected at this AQI range, people with lung disease, older adults and children are at a greater risk from exposure to ozone, whereas persons with heart and lung disease, older adults and children are at greater risk from the presence of particles in the air.
AQI: Unhealthy (151 - 200) AQI: Unhealthy (151 - 200)
Everyone may begin to experience health effects members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects.
 AQI:Very Unhealthy (201 - 300) AQI: Very Unhealthy (201 - 300)
Health alert: everyone may experience more serious health effects.
AQI: Hazardous(301 - 500) AQI: Hazardous (301 - 500)

Forecast Discussion: August 20-25, 2018 – An upper level trough is moving through the Pacific Northwest resulting in a cooling trend regionally through Tuesday. Temperatures will rebound to seasonal norms, but coastal and valley areas may have periodic night and morning clouds for the remainder of the week. Smoke from wildfires north of us continues to transport south today over our area. This smoke usually stays aloft but depending on meteorological conditions it can divert to lower levels affecting our local air quality. This is what our regional air monitors are currently indicating. Smoke transported from these massive wildfires has degraded air quality slightly in Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Cruz counties over the weekend and is still present on Monday, Aug. 20th. Concentration levels are MODERATE in most areas throughout the region but may reach Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups levels in some parts of the air basin. Conditions are subject to change depending on wind and fire activity. As a result, air quality (PM2.5) will be variable and unpredictable. The Air District will continue to follow the situation and issue advisories when appropriate. Please monitor our website for updates. Region wide, expect PM2.5 to be in the MODERATE range, except Pinnacles which is registering in the GOOD range, as the wildfire smoke moves past. Ozone may also be affected by the smoke. Expect Ozone levels along the coast to be in the GOOD range but Pinnacles may see Ozone levels in the MODERATE range during this period. Hollister and King City may see PM10 also in the MODERATE range.
