The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has issued air quality advisories continuing through Labor Day because of wildfire smoke.
The air district on Friday said the Northern California wildfires are likely to continue sending smoke into the Bay Area, causing hazy and smoky skies for the next three days, but the overall air quality is expected to be good to moderate in the region.

The National Weather Service also is forecasting warming temperatures in the Bay Area through Labor Day, with triple-digit temperatures likely in some inland locations on Sunday and Monday.
The hottest inland locations could see temperatures as high as 108 degrees, while coastal parts of the region will mostly stay in the 70s, according to the weather service.
The air quality advisories have come frequently in recent weeks because of wildfire smoke, and when the pollution levels have been worse, the air district has issued the Spare the Air alerts that ban wood burning both inside and outside.
If anyone smells smoke, they should try to stay inside with windows and doors closed, and should set their air conditioning and car vent systems to recirculate to stop outside air from coming inside, according to the air district.
