Forecasters say high temperatures combined with light winds are expected to produce poor air quality.
Tom Dang is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sacramento. He says we’ve got an unseasonably strong high-pressure system sitting right on top of us.
“We should be expecting high pressure over us this time of year. But it is stronger than normal and that’s what’s bringing us temperatures that are in the neighborhood of 10 to 15 degrees warmer than normal. And definitely looking warmer than normal for the next several days as well.”
Meanwhile, air quality officials are asking area Sacramento area residents to carpool, telecommute by working from home instead of driving to work and postpone errands.
