…AIR QUALITY ALERT UNTIL 10AM SATURDAY…
Unhealthy air will be common across north central and eastern
Washington. High pressure over the region will continue with light
winds and very little ventilation of smoke from wildfires in
Washington, Idaho, BC, areas to our south. Winds increasing Friday
into Saturday should help improve air quality for the weekend.
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.
