• Pacific Grove, Carmel Schools Start the Year in Degraded Air Quality

    As students start classes today in Pacific Grove and Carmel, the National Weather Service reports that a directional change in transport winds is pushing smoke northward today. Big Sur reports very unhealthy air while Carmel Valley is unhealthy and Monterey, Toro Park and Ft. Ord are described as “unhealthy for sensitive groups.”

    The Soberanes fire is reported to have grown to 68,698 acres with 50% containment.

    4,855 people and 18 helicopters are on the line while we drink our morning coffee.

    Weather will likely be warmer and drier tomorrow, Thurs., Aug. 11 and that means smoke production will increase and air quality will degrade.

  • Beach Report Card


    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
