6:20 am
so that's going to bring fire weather watch, low relative humidity, and then the cooler temperatures. so even though it's the better news for our air quality, it's not great for everyone and we certainly don't need any more fires around here. 54 in napa. 52 in santa rosa. 59 in hayward. 61 in san jose and the fog is certainly out there, anywhere from one to two miles from oakland to hayward and mountain view two-mile visibility in san jose a mile in santa rosa. so air quality unhealthy today and tomorrow in the very unhealthy range and looking at some improvements tuesday and wednesday, not to say we won't see any hazy sun. we saw that yesterday but still, with the air quality indices well over 100, it is not safe to go should have that n-95 with you. so napa, san rafael looking at the red unhealthy air from san francisco and oakland and fremont, down to san jose. so really no changes there, but those winds later on today
