Wildfire Smoke Information – May 31, 2019
More detailed information is available here: http://bit.ly/wildfiresmokereport
Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups
Bozeman (Note: the Bozeman monitor is down for maintenance. Visibility observations indicate air quality ranging from unhealthy for sensitive groups to unhealthy)
Dense smoke from Alberta moved down into Montana overnight, bringing unhealthy for sensitive groups to unhealthy air quality along the Rocky Mountain Front, east to Great Falls and extending down to Bozeman.
This smoke will likely persist throughout the day, improving slightly during the afternoon as daytime heating helps lift the smoke. Fortunately, smoke from the fires is expected to be redirected away from Montana, which will allow air quality to slowly improve over the next day or so. By Sunday, we should see improved air quality across the region.
