The red air quality alert will continue for the Treasure Valley today, with the Air Quality Index around 150.
It’s possible a storm system moves into the area this evening – which could help blow some of the smoke out of our area.
A healthy AQI is 0-50. In the red/unhealthy range, groups should avoid prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors — especially children, older adults and people with heart or lung disease.
Outdoor burning is currently banned in Ada and Canyon counties, including in city limits. DEQ encourages residents to combine trips and errands and take other steps to limit driving time.
