North Coast Air Quality Management District
HUMBOLDT/DEL NORTE – USFS Air Resource Advisors indicate that the Northern Humboldt and Del Norte area will experience light NW winds today, and that areas closer to the coast should have good air quality. Smoke impacts to coast areas from fires in Southwestern Oregon should also decrease.
The Mill Creek 1 Fire has decreased and moved into a neighboring watershed which has reduced the smoke impacts in the upper Hoopa valley and air quality has improved along the Trinity and Klamath River drainages. Southern Humboldt communities should only have minor smoke impacts midday from the Ranch Fire, as light southerly winds will drift smoke and haze northerly today. In general, air quality associated with smoke from the Mendocino Complex is expected to be on an improving trend this week.
