Air quality advisory issued for Wednesday and Thursday due to Northern California wildfire smoke

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has issued an air quality advisory for Wednesday and Thursday for the San Francisco Bay Area.

Smoke from wildfires burning in Northern California is expected to drift south to the Bay Area and lead to hazy conditions in the region.

Air quality is expected to be moderate, according to the agency.

Elevated air pollution may cause residents with asthma, emphysema or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease to experience wheezing. The agency recommends staying inside with doors and windows closed if the smell of smoke is present.
