If you’ve sealed yourself inside your house over the past week because of the Bay Area’s unhealthy, smoke-filled air, you’re in for a respite this week.

An offshore weather system moved in earlier than expected early Tuesday morning, diluting the smoke from wildfires raging throughout California and bringing in cleaner air for much of the Bay Area. The Air Quality Index showed “good” or “moderate”-quality air had settled in different parts of the Bay Area, though with pockets of “unhealthy for sensitive groups” air showing up in San Jose, Gilroy, Pleasanton and Livermore.
