Poor air quality over Southern and Western Saskatchewan.

Forest fire smoke travelling in from the Northwestern United States is reducing visibilities and creating poor air quality over much of Southern and Western 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.
