…AIR QUALITY ALERT IN EFFECT UNTIL MIDNIGHT PDT TONIGHT…

An Air Quality Alert for smoke issued by the following agency remains in effect: Puget Sound Clean Air Agency until midnight PDT Sunday night.

The air quality is expected to be unhealthy for sensitive groups. The overall air quality will be moderate for most the Puget Sound for the next few days from wildfire smoke. Some areas closer to US Route 2, Darrington, and east King and Snohomish County may reach unhealthy for sensitive groups, unhealthy, or worse at times from the smoke.

All sensitive groups should limit spending any time outdoors.

People with health conditions may have worsened symptoms.

We do not expect rain for at least the next few days, and onshore winds will be light, so the smoke is expected to linger. For the latest information on pollution levels, visit map.pscleanair.gov.

When pollution levels are high, try to find clean indoor air or use an air filter if possible.
