Air Quality Advisory – Aug 20 2018

Metro Vancouver is continuing an Air Quality Advisory for Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley because of high concentrations of fine particulate matter due to smoke from wildfires burning in British Columbia and the western United States. Elevated levels of fine particulate matter are expected to persist until there is a change in fire or weather conditions.

Smoke concentrations may vary widely across the region as winds and temperatures change, and as wildfire behaviour changes.
