...DENSE SMOKE CONTINUES SATURDAY WITH IMPROVEMENT POSSIBLE...

Smoke from wildfires located north of the Canadian border in
Ontario and Manitoba lingers across the area through Saturday
afternoon. As winds increase later this afternoon, visibility and
air quality may begin to improve by this evening. Smoke may return
again late Sunday into Monday.

Visibility due to smoke may remain between two and four miles into
early afternoon before improving.

Due to the poor air quality, sensitive groups, such as people
with lung disease (including asthma), heart disease, and children
and older adults, should avoid prolonged or heavy exertion. The
general public should also limit prolonged or heavy exertion.

For the latest information on air quality in your location, go to
airnow.gov.
