...REDUCED AIR QUALITY CONTINUES THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING...

Wildfire smoke continues to linger across the area. While some
improvement in air quality is expected this afternoon, air
quality is expected to worsen this evening into Tuesday morning.

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.

For the latest information on air quality in your location, go to
