Use the microwave, Sunday's a Spare the Air Day

   The Bay Area Air Quality Management District is declaring Sunday a Spare the Air Day, the second day in a row and seventh this year that the alert has been issued due to high temperatures expected throughout the region.
   Highs in the low 80s on the coast and mid 90s inland are expected to combine with light winds to produce poor air quality in the Bay Area.
   Temperatures are expected to stay high throughout the Bay Area and the Monterey Bay region until Tuesday, with some inland areas expected to reach the low 100s.
   “Another Spare the Air Alert has been called and more may be on the way,” Jack Broadbent, executive director of the district, said in a
statement. “Reducing the number of cars on Bay Area roads is the most effective way for us all to Spare the Air every day.”
   Residents are advised by the air district to help prevent smog by carpooling with friends, taking public transportation or postponing errands if possible.
   All residents – particularly those with respiratory conditions, elderly people and children – should either stay inside or reduce their time
outdoors during the hottest part of the day to avoid having an adverse medical reaction to the heat and increased smog.
   Residents and visitors are also being reminded to never leave children or pets in the backseat of parked cars during particularly hot days.
   There is a no wood burning ban in place or outside burning due to the Spare the Air alert, according to the district.
