Air Quality Alert

910 AM MDT Tue Sep 29 2020


The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has
issued the following...

WHAT...Air Quality Health Advisory for Wildfire Smoke.

WHERE...Larimer County. Locations include, but are not limited to
Rustic, Red Feather Lakes, Ft. Collins, and Loveland.

WHEN...900 AM Tuesday September 29 to 900 AM Wednesday September

IMPACTS...Areas of moderate to heavy smoke have been observed
across Larimer County due to the Cameron Peak and Mullen
wildfires. Smoke will gradually decrease late Tuesday morning and
into the afternoon hours as atmospheric mixing increases, with the
slowest improvement occurring in southeastern parts of the county,
including Ft. Collins and Loveland. With dry and breezy conditions
at both fires Tuesday afternoon, smoke production could once again
increase. This will continue the threat for periods of moderate to
heavy smoke across Larimer County through at least Wednesday

HEALTH INFORMATION...Public Health Recommendations: If smoke is
thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain
indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease,
respiratory illnesses, the very young, and the elderly. Consider
limiting outdoor activity when moderate to heavy smoke is present.
Consider relocating temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is
making you ill. If visibility is less than 5 miles in smoke in
your neighborhood, smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy.

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Fire weather concerns are slightly elevated over the northeastern
plains today as humidity will drop to the mid to low teens while
northwesterly winds may gust between 20-25 mph. Otherwise, it
will be warmer and dry.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Fire danger will be elevated due to persistent low humidity and
gusty winds. Minimum humidities will often be below 20 percent
coincident with gusts up to 25 mph. The danger is expected to be
most widespread on Friday and Monday, and most persistent in the
northern mountains, foothills, and high mountain valleys, though
it will occasionally spread to the adjacent plains.
