Here is a graph showing how the controlled burn by Montana de Oro affected local air. It displays measurements of a size of particulate matter called PM-10. Note the huge spike at 1400 hours (2 p.m.) for Arroyo Grande and an hour later when the main cloud invaded Santa Maria.

NE winds are in the forecast overnight and should carry most smoke out to sea.
People with higher sensitivity to smoke and air quality may want to limit their exposure while the plume is visible.
Monitor the SLO air pollution control district for any alerts relating to the air quality.
An examply of live moniroting stations can be found HERE.
