Special air quality statement in effect for:

  • Martensville - Warman - Rosthern - Delisle - Wakaw

Poor air quality at times expected overnight into Monday.

Air quality readings have improved over Southern Saskatchewan today as an area of forest fire smoke moves out of the area. However another area of smoke is expected to drift in across much of Southern Saskatchewan tonight into Monday from the Northwest United States. This will result in a reduction in air quality values as well as locally reduced visibilities overnight into Monday across portions of Southern Saskatchewan.

Individuals living in or travelling in this area are advised to be aware of potential health concerns that can be associated with current air conditions. In the current conditions, even healthy individuals may experience temporary irritation of eyes and throat, and possibly shortness of breath.

Air quality can vary with weather conditions and prevailing winds. Because air quality is expected to be variable, this advisory will remain in effect until further notice.
