Vancouver now has a rating of 196 on the US air quality index (AQI), not far behind Portland, which has an index level of 218. "But in terms of a true improvement in the air quality condition, they are looking towards the weekend for that to potentially happen", said Lowry.

Air quality statements have been issued for four regions of southwestern Alberta along the Rockies, but the weather office says alerts will likely expand before smoke exits that province tonight.

The smoke is high in the atmosphere, so it will have little effect on air quality in Upstate New York, said Ben Lott, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Binghamton.

Environment Canada advises people with chronic medical conditions or acute infections such as COVID-19 to postpone or reduce outdoor physical activity until the advisory is lifted, especially if breathing feels uncomfortable. Keep the filtration system running to try and keep as much smoke out of the air as possible. She says they're concerned about the small particles in that grey smokey air, that can sneak past the human body's defense system like nasal hairs, and get deeper into the lungs.
