Higher temps, poor air quality predicted for Thursday 

With light winds and warm temperatures predicted to linger throughout the Bay Area until the end of the week, the Bay Area Air Quality
Management District has declared Thursday another Spare the Air day, the fourth of the summer.

Air quality officials believe that ground-level ozone pollution will continue to be unhealthy on Thursday and are asking Bay Area residents
to consider making adjustments to their driving habits to help prevent producing more smog.

The air quality district suggests taking public transportation, carpooling, telecommuting and postponing errands that require getting behind
the wheel.

The current warming trend is forecast to end by the weekend, National Weather Service meteorologist Diana Henderson said.

"Looking at the Bay Area, it looks like the fog's going to come back in and it's going to cool off a little on Friday," Henderson said,
adding that Saturday will likely be even cooler.

Temperatures on the coast are predicted to return to the mid-60s by the weekend, while inland the temperatures should decrease to the mid-70s and mid-80s, according to the National Weather Service.
