Special air quality statement in effect for:

  • City of Winnipeg

Increasing smoke in Manitoba Thursday.

While hazy conditions persist across the province today, a second round of thicker smoke is expected to move into Manitoba Thursday. As winds turn more northwesterly through the day, much of the province will once more be downwind of the on-going fires in Northern Saskatchewan. Areas closest to the Saskatchewan border will again be the most affected by reduced visibilities and poor air quality values. Smoky conditions are expected to continue on Friday before winds across Manitoba begin to turn southerly on Saturday.
