Statements

Special air quality statement in effect for:

  • Brandon - Carberry - Treherne

Widespread smoke across Southern and Central Manitoba today and Wednesday.

A large area of smoke from forest fires in Northern Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories has settled into the province. The smoke is mainly aloft and is creating hazy conditions across the entire province. However, local reductions in visibilities and poor air quality values continue in areas closest to the Saskatchewan border, northwest winds aloft are expected to persist over Manitoba for the next few days so hazy conditions are expected to linger for the next few days with the worst conditions remaining closer to the Saskatchewan border.
