Regina is under an air quality alert

Smoke from wildfires in northern Saskatchewan is moving into the southern part of the province today and that has resulted in Environment Canada issuing an air quality alert for the City of Regina. In fact, the entire province is now under an air quality alert.

Reduced visibility and poor air quality can be expected throughout the day and some could experience coughing, headaches and shortness of breath—especially those with asthma, COPD or other lung diseases.

While an air quality alert for Regina has been issued, the City is no longer under a Heat Warning with the high today only to get to 27. As for rain, the weather office says we could see some late afternoon or evening showers but how much if any can’t be determined.

At this time, there are no severe thunderstorm watches or warnings out but that could change as the day goes along. Check the latest info by going to our website at 620
