Air quality to worsen in Northwest as smoke returns

Smoky skies, bad air from wildfires cover Northwest

As of 1:00 p.m. Sunday, air quality monitors in Yakima, Toppenish, Sunnyside and White Swan reported air quality as "very unhealthy", with each site reporting dangerously high levels of ultrafine "PM 2.5" particulate pollution.

"The signals are for some of these values and concentrations to continue to spill onto the B.C. coast on Monday and Tuesday", says The Weather Network meteorologist Tyler Hamilton.

While Metro Vancouver's air quality saw a brief reprieve on Friday, August 17th, the smoky haze returned the day after.

- Continued smoke from Northern California wildfires, along with pollution from cars, has prompted the Bay Area Air Quality Management District to issue a Spare the Air alert for Sunday. Smoke may not affect all areas at all times.
