...AIR QUALITY ADVISORY ISSUED FOR ALL SOUTHERN WISCONSIN
COUNTIES...

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has issued an Air
Quality Advisory for Particle Pollution which will remain in
effect until 12:00 PM CDT Sunday, August 1. This advisory affects
people in all southern Wisconsin counties. This is in additional
to the early one in effect for Lafayette and Iowa counties, which
is currently in effect this afternoon.

Smoke from wildfire activity in Canada currently located in
Minnesota will move into Wisconsin overnight Friday into Saturday
morning. This smoke plume is expected to mostly impact the
northern half of the state. A secondary smoke plume will then
transport behind a cold front which is expected to move
north-to-south across the state Saturday afternoon into early
Sunday morning. Elevated fine particulate matter (PM2.5)
concentrations are anticipated to result in air quality index
(AQI) values in the UNHEALTHY FOR SENSITIVE GROUPS level over
this period. Sensitive groups include children, elderly people,
individuals with respiratory and cardiac problems, and anyone
engaged in strenuous outdoor activities for a prolonged period of
time.
