...AIR QUALITY ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 AM CDT MONDAY...
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has issued an Air
Quality Advisory FOR Particulates...in effect until 8 AM CDT Monday.
Smoke originating from wildfires in Quebec, Canada is currently
impacting particulate concentrations at the surface across much of
the state. The air quality index is expected to range from the
UNHEALTHY FOR SENSITIVE GROUPS level to the UNHEALTHY level across
the advisory area.
In general, the lowest particulate concentrations are expected to
the northwest, while highest concentrations are expected near north
central and northeast Wisconsin, within and around the Fox River
Valley. It is recommended that people with heart or lung disease,
older adults, and children should avoid prolonged or heavy exertion,
while everyone else should reduce prolonged or heavy exertion.
