...SMOKE FROM SURROUNDING WILDFIRES MAY RESULT IN POOR AIR QUALITY THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH TUESDAY... Upper level high pressure and offshore surface flow will allow for smoke aloft from wildfires around the region to mix down into the lower atmosphere. Air quality sensors in many locations around Western Washington are indicating MODERATE to UNHEALTHY FOR SENSITIVE GROUPS air quality. With little to no improvement expected tonight and Tuesday...these conditions are expected to either persist or degrade further. Conditions are expected to improve late Tuesday night and Wednesday as surface flow shifts onshore. Children, the elderly, and individuals with respiratory illnesses are most at risk of serious health effects. These groups should limit or avoid spending time outdoors.
