…AIR QUALITY ALERT UNTIL 10AM FRIDAY…

Unhealthy air will be common across central and eastern Washington.
High pressure over the region will bring light winds and very little
ventilation of smoke from wildfires in Washington, Idaho, BC, areas to
our south.

Children, the elderly, and individuals with respiratory illnesses
are most at risk of serious health effects. If you experience
respiratory distress, you should speak with your physician.
