September 14, 2020 – Air Quality Update

As I’m sure everyone is aware, the air quality is at a very high risk. The smoke from all the wildfires in Washington, Oregon and California are the culprit. It is advised that any outdoor activities should be limited and anyone with any respiratory issues should stay inside. Using data from two of the reporting stations nearest Midway (Castlegar and South Okanagan) it is forecasted that air quality should improve this afternoon.
Here are the links to each reporting station’s 18hr forecast:
