...air quality alert until tuesday...
Unhealthy air will be common at times across eastern washington and north idaho due to the large wildfires currently burning around the region. Children, the elderly, and individuals with respiratory illnesses are most at risk of serious health effects. If you experience respiratory distress, you should speak with your physician. Some improvement in ventilation will be possible over the weekend, potentially allowing the air quality to oscillate between unhealthy and moderate to good for a brief spell, however with wind expected to turn northerly sunday night into monday smoke from ongoing fires in british columbia is likely to drift into washington and idaho and cause a more pronounced and prolonged return to unhealthy levels.
