...AIR QUALITY ALERT IN EFFECT UNTIL MIDNIGHT EDT FRIDAY NIGHT...

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has issued an
Air Quality Action Day for the following counties:

Bergen, Passaic, Hudson, Essex, and Union,

until midnight EDT Friday night.

An Air Quality Action Day for Particulate Matter (PM2.5) has been
declared for Thursday, June 8th. Levels of fine particulates will
remain in the unhealthy category statewide on Thursday and extend
into the evening hours due to wildfire smoke transport from eastern
Canadian wildfires. Some members of the general public may experience
health effects, while members of sensitive groups, including those
with heart or lung disease, the elderly, and the young, may
experience more serious health effects. All individuals should limit
strenuous activities and the amount of time active outdoors
especially in the evening hours. In addition, ozone is forecast to
reach the low moderate category as warm temperatures are forecast
for the Garden State.  

An Air Quality Action Day for Particulate Matter (PM2.5) has been
declared for Friday, June 9th. Sensitive individuals, including those
with heart or lung disease, the elderly, and the young should limit
strenuous activities and the amount of time active outdoors. Levels
of fine particulates will remain elevated in the unhealthy for
sensitive groups category statewide on Friday due to residual
Canadian wildfire smoke. Ozone levels are forecast to drop into the
good/moderate threshold on Friday as chances for rain are expected to
help limit ozone formation in northern portions of the state.
