...REDUCED AIR QUALITY CONTINUES ON MONDAY...

Wildfire smoke that continues to linger across the area, will
continue to produce reduced air quality through Monday. Some
improvement in air quality is possible by this afternoon, but
there is potential for falling air quality levels again overnight.

Due to the poor air quality, sensitive groups, such as people
with lung disease (including asthma), heart disease, and children
and older adults, should avoid prolonged or heavy exertion. The
general public should also limit prolonged or heavy exertion.
