Special air quality statement in effect for:

  • Kindersley - Rosetown - Biggar - Wilkie - Macklin

Widespread smoke across Saskatchewan.

A large area of smoke from forest fires over Northern Saskatchewan and Northern Alberta continues to blanket much of Saskatchewan. Visibilities have been reduced to less than 3 kilometres in many areas especially in Central and Northern Saskatchewan. Air quality is poor in many areas due to the smoke.

Significant smoke will persist over most of the province. A brief reprieve has been felt in southwestern portions of the province as both visibilities and air quality have improved. However, northwest winds will bring more smoke tonight.

Conditions will improve over Southeastern Saskatchewan Monday morning.
