Northwest Clean Air Agency officials said today that they plan to assess on Friday whether or not to lift the air quality burn ban implemented last weekend.
Air quality began to improve today as forecast and many in the Ferndale area reported a visible difference. It had returned to within the “GOOD” range on the WAQA scale by 4pm today.
The onshore flows, both at the surface and aloft, that are responsible for clearing away the smoke that has blanketed the area for days are expected to continue clearing smoky air tomorrow.
There is also a slight and increasing chance for precipitation in the area tonight through Sunday.
