Special air quality statement in effect for:

  • Martensville - Warman - Rosthern - Delisle - Wakaw

Widespread smoke across all of Saskatchewan.

A large area of smoke from forest fires over Northern Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories continues to blanket much of Saskatchewan. Visibilities have been reduced to less than 2 kilometres in many areas especially in Central and Northern Saskatchewan. Air quality is poor in many areas due to the smoke. Smoke near the ground may cause potentially high health risk conditions.

Conditions are very gradually improving today in the southern portions of the province as winds shift more westerly. However, for much of Northern Grainbelt and northwards, significant smoke will persist over the next couple of days as northwesterly winds and hot, dry conditions continue for the area.
