The Bay Area Air Quality Management District is issuing an air quality advisory for smoke for the entire Bay Area region through Friday, November 9. Hazy skies and smoke impacts are expected to begin at mid-day Thursday, November 8, from the wildfire in Butte County.
Beginning at mid-day today through tomorrow, the Bay Area will experience air quality impacts as smoke from the Camp Fire in Butte County, northeast of the Bay Area, moves in to the region. Most of the smoke is expected to remain aloft but the public will likely see and smell smoke from the quickly expanding Camp Fire.
The Air District is not forecasting an exceedance of the federal air quality health standard for the region and is not issuing a Spare the Air Alert at this time. The Air District will be closely monitoring air quality throughout the region for smoke impacts from this wildfire.
