AIR STAGNATION ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 4AM PST TUESDAY
Poor mixing and light winds will keep stagnant conditions in place through at least Monday night. Pollutants may be trapped near ground level, resulting in reduced air quality at times. The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has issued an Air Pollution Advisory which is in effect until further notice for Douglas, Jackson, Klamath and Lake counties. Increasing winds Tuesday should result in improved conditions.
Valleys in Klamath and Lake counties.
Pollutants in smoke may aggravate heart and lung disease and aggravate other serious health problems. Limit outdoor activities when air quality is reduced. Diminished air quality can create respiratory problems, especially for sensitive groups. Please follow medical advice if you have a heart or lung condition.
