Smoke lighter than before

It isn’t as bad as the last time, but the smoke is definitely back and has settled into the valley. The Island seems to be getting most of it. AQ is a little better on the Lower Mainland.

We are into the 30s for PM2.5 now. We were into the 100s a few weeks ago so it definitely isn’t as bad, but this level, for an extended period, will impact many people’s health.

Here’s my graph right now. Showing we have stabilized around 30-40 ug/m3

The weather will remain the same as well. The fog should hopefully burn off this morning and we should be left with a hazy, obscured sun kind of day.

There is no significant change in the forecast out through next week. I’ll have a September summary in the coming days.

Happy Thursday!
