• Soberanes Fire 7 AM update 8/15/16 Acres 74,604 Containment 60% Personnel 4102. Hwy 1 has closed again due to a hazardous tree.

    Warm and dry weather conditions forecast, fire growth and interior burning continue and smoke production is expected to increase. Winds from the north and northwest will give most communities in the fire area some relief from smoke.

    Big Sur is expected to be UNHEALTHY. Smoke forecast: GOOD in Pacific Grove, Monterey. Carmel Valley, Gonzales, Soledad, Greenfield, King City, and Lockwood will continue to have moderate AQ due to the NW winds. Smoke is expected to continue impacting the San Joaquin Valley and Sierra foothills.

    Northern San Luis Obispo County, especially coastal areas, will continue to have an impact from smoke. Changes to AQ today are results of continued burning, forecasted weather, and dispersion models.
Tomorrow: Smoke transport again is expected to be influenced by a northerly wind which will increase impacts to southern Monterey County and northern San Luis Obispo County.

    Weather is forecasted to cool and relative humidity increase which may slow fire activity.
Info from California Smoke Information: This site is a voluntary effort by city, county, state, tribal and/or federal agencies to coordinate and aggregate information for California communities affected by wildfire smoke.
