Air quality in ‘good’ or ‘moderate’ range

From staff reports

The smell of smoke is thick in some parts of the Spokane area Thursday morning, but most monitors show the air quality in the “good range.”

Five of the six monitors used by the Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency are showing readings in the “good” range. Only the agency’s monitor at Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge is above that in the “moderate” range.

Mark Turner, observing program leader for the National Weather Service’s Spokane office, said smoky conditions will improve significantly throughout the morning.
