Heat, Canadian wildfires combine to cause air pollution

It’s going to get hot today with temperatures forecast to get into the 90s this afternoon.

Vermont can expect moderate concentrations of air pollution from smoke to affect the states through Friday as a result of wildfire smoke from Nova Scotia, Canada, the Journal-Opinion newsletter reports.

For most, air quality is expected to remain acceptable. The Seacoast area can expect unhealthy levels that pose threats to sensitive populations.

“The predicted air pollution will be transported with the winds along a band stretching from the Boston metropolitan area to the New Hampshire coastline,” states the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services. “Air quality is expected to improve by Friday, particularly in the afternoon, when temperatures are anticipated to cool and cloud cover is forecasted to increase.”
