Air Quality Advisory
The NECSD has suspended all outdoor activities for Wednesday, June 7th. More information provided by the EPA and CDC can be found by clicking the title link: Air Quality and Outdoor Activity Guidance for Schools. Check the air quality daily at www.airnow.gov.
Our area is currently under an Air Quality Advisory due to dozens of large wildfires in Quebec-Ontario producing copious amounts of smoke and current atmospheric conditions. According to the area's favorite snow-day predictor, Ben Noll, "The highest concentrations are expected between 1:00 - 6:00 pm today, Wednesday, June 7th. The peak is expected around 2:00 - 4:00 pm, when the air quality index reaches above 151, qualifying as “unhealthy” according to the EPA’s scale. Sensitive groups should avoid prolonged or heavy exertion; general public should reduce prolonged or heavy exertion."
His forecast predicts, "While there will still be some smoke in the air on Thursday, it will be much less dense than on Tuesday and today, especially later in the day. From Friday-Sunday, smoke concentrations look light to occasionally moderate at this time. However, smoke concentration forecasts are subject to change based on the behavior of the fires and predicted wind flows. A southerly wind shift on Monday should at least temporarily blow the smoke away from the Hudson Valley."
