Air quality has improved considerably over the past 24 hours across
the region. An air mass change that began yesterday evening will
continue through today. Thus air quality should continue to improve
as winds aloft shift more westerly. Thus the air quality alert has
been allowed to expire. There may be localized smoke issues near
fires at times into early next week.

Ecology Web site at or call 360-407-
