Air quality warning, cloudy skies Sunday

Posted at 6:30 PM, Sep 12, 2020

It was another hazy day for much of the Central Coast.

Smoke from wildfires burning across the state continues to impact our air quality.

Because of this, an air quality warning has been issued for San Luis Obispo County through Sunday at 5 p.m.

In addition to the smoke, low clouds and fog persisted along the coast.

A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for both Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties as visibility will be one quarter mile or less in dense fog.


The combo of clouds and smoke has held back our maximum daytime temperatures between 5-10 degrees.

Low clouds and fog will likely affect the coastal plain each night and morning Sunday night through Tuesday morning.

Smokey skies will linger to some degree through Sunday night.

Breezy onshore south to west winds should affect much of the region each afternoon and early evening.

The gusts will be strongest in the foothills, mountains, and deserts.

Temperatures will go back to being above normal but how warm it will get will depend on the smoke.

Forecasting the day's highs are tricky during this time and our KSBY Microclimate Weather app is having issues due to all the smoke.

Have a great rest of your weekend!
