Smoky skies from Soberanes fire in Monterey County causing 'Spare the Air' alert today

High temperatures to add to unhealthy air

A Spare the Air alert has been issued for Pleasanton and the Bay Area today.

Officials with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District said a combination of a regional weather system and smoke from the Soberanes fire in Monterey County will bring high temperatures and smoky skies to Santa Clara County and southern Alameda County that will persist through Monday.

In combination with vehicle exhaust, the air in the region will be unhealthy, especially for seniors, young children and people with respiratory and heart conditions.
