Was out for a hike at my mom's place the other day. Lots of dead lodgepole pine to burn.

Re: August 2018 Currrent Conditions & Forecasts

You guys really got it bad yesterday. Here in the Okanagan the smoke lingered in the valleys, but it was blue sky up at Silver Star. Still the smokiest day of the year low elevations though.

Re: August 2018 Currrent Conditions & Forecasts

Even the interior hot spots won't hit 30 today so highly unlikely anyone on the Lower Mainland will get even close.

EDIT: Uh, Agassiz is already at 26 at 10 am!?

Blistering hot in Hope today. 29.5, good enough for hottest place in BC.

Smoke is clearing out today, heading toward the Coast. You poor suckers.

I imagine Kelowna isn't looking too good right now either. I read they cancelled the Apple Triathalon and the air quality is ranked lower than Jodhpur, India.

Yup, has now dropped to 0.8 km this morning which means flights will be cancelled.
