Smoke forecast tool

This summer, as wildlife smoke blows in and out of town, many are concerned about their health and want to know when things might improve, or where the air quality might be better.

There is a new smoke forecast tool where you can see predictions for next 51 hours. (Zoom in to find Courtenay). You can slow down the speed it runs at to see how things are predicted to change over the coming 2 days.

Keep in mind, this is just a prediction and is no guarantee that local conditions will be exactly like the model predicts.
