This just in from Puget Sound Clean Air Agency and King County/Seattle Public Health — we’re about to get a smoke break:
We forecast air pollution levels that are UNHEALTHY for everyone to continue through much of today in the Puget Sound Region. There has been some improvement in the South Puget Sound, but the levels still remain UNHEALTHY for everyone. Lingering smoke over the Pacific may still impact us through early tomorrow morning, but we expect much less smoke by tomorrow afternoon. Until air quality gets better, stay indoors with windows closed, if you can find somewhere cool. Check the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency website for updated forecasts as conditions change.
