...SMOKE FROM SURROUNDING WILDFIRES MAY RESULT IN POOR AIR QUALITY THIS AFTERNOON INTO WEDNESDAY MORNING... Although surface flow is transitioning to become more onshore...the weak nature of this flow is having difficulty dispelling the smoke already present over areas of Western Washington. Air quality sensors in many locations are indicating UNHEALTHY to UNHEALTHY FOR SENSITIVE GROUPS air quality. With little to no improvement expected tonight into Wednesday morning...these conditions are expected to persist. Conditions may start to improve Wednesday as an upper level trough begins to approach the area...bringing a better chance for increased onshore flow. 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.
