Environment Canada Issues Air Quality Statement

Winnipeg you are HOT… literally.

It’s obviously been a VERY hot summer here in the Peg, and its causing a couple issues. Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for parts of southern Manitoba, involving air quality risks.

Smoke is coming from forest fires in Alberta and B.C. into southern Manitoba… Sarah was just in Alberta and says the smoke was so bad she couldn’t even see the Edmonton city skyline!

The smoke in Manitoba will gradually decline over the next few days, however with the combination with heat, dry conditions and pollution the air quality won’t be its best.

The statement indicates that the heat, in combination with the seasonally dry conditions, and pollution, have caused a decline in air quality for parts of Manitoba.

Stay cool Winnipeg, and remember to drink lots of H2O!
