Much better than yesterday – that’s according to Global BC meteorologist Yvonne Schalle on the smoke situation in Metro Vancouver.
“We’ve got some marine air that’s pushed in now from the west. However, throughout the day we’ll still start to see the wind shift out of the east and west, but we will see a nice clearing for a few spots. Air Quality (warning) is still in effect, I anticipate we’ll still see that in for tomorrow but there has been a nice clearing in the air with a moderate improvement for today.”
The Air Quality Index was “Low” overnight and is expected to only rise to “Moderate” during the day.
However, it’s still very high in Whistler – the worst she’s ever seen, according to Mayor Nancy Wilhelm-Morden.
And it will be hot in Metro Vancouver this afternoon.
“There will be a reprieve in terms of our temperatures, especially as we get towards the end of the work week. We’re seeing cooler temperatures with highs of 22 and 23. Any rain on the horizon? Absolutely not.”
