Is it smoky in Napa?
Save

We’re staying in Calistoga in early September. Can anyone tell me if it’s very smoky there now? We might consider canceling if it’s so smoky we can’t see or enjoy the beautiful views.

No one can predict what conditions will be like next month. Suggest checking the purpleair app for current conditions, but a long-range forecast is nearly impossible.

Search on Napa CA or zip 94558.

You might also monitor Cal Fire for any new wildfire activity. www.fire.ca.gov

A fire that hasn’t started yet today could be a pretty big event in a couple of weeks.

I would plan on going. So far smoke in the bay area has been high smoke - and does not impact much.

The fires are planning to be burning though early September given current updates.

Things as said by others might change so consider monitoring.

You could of course cancel and do your tirp in December where its highly unlikely there will be fires.
