Spokane woke up on Friday to the cleanest air it’s had for days.

Two of the four air quality monitors in Spokane County were registering “good” air at 7:35 a.m. Two other others measured “moderate” air.

The fresh air may not last, however. The Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency predicts “unhealthy” air later today.
