The triple digits are returning to the Central Valley this weekend and air quality could suffer as a result. Air quality officials report while last night's fireworks definitely took a toll on air quality, things weren't as bad as they have been in the past. "We didn't see the stagnant weather patterns that can sometimes force the pollution to build up really quickly and then to linger around without it being able to disperse or clear out," said Jaime Holt, a spokesperson for the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District.
