Air quality will remain unhealthful in some areas of the Los Angeles basin on Saturday, particularly around Riverside and Orange County's Saddleback Valley. Because normal wind patterns have returned, smoke is remaining in interior areas, closer to fires, rather than spreading to the coast. Most of the valleys and coastal areas returned to moderate air quality today.
In areas where unhealthful air quality is forecast, as well as anywhere that smoke or ash is seen or smelled, health officials advise everyone to avoid exerting themselves, indoors or outdoors. People with heart disease, respiratory diseases including asthma, as well as the elderly and children should remain indoors.
