Winds have been low < 2 m/s all day at the SPCY study site with PM2.5 fairly low as well with hourly concentrations no more than 13 µg/m3 during this morning's commute time. As I was driving back from the station the haze was increasing over areas that have unpaved roads. Winds were variable and from the north and east while I was there.
The Airnow AQI forecast shows good or green levels in our region today.
Evening particulates at the SPCY station were typical tonight and it peaked at the same time as usual but the magnitudes were not that impressive. Winds were low in the range we usually see the low wind events.
