Spokane air quality improves to ‘good’ following smoky Saturday
SPOKANE, Wash. — Spokane’s air quality has improved to ‘good,’ a welcome reprieve for many stuck in this weekend’s wildfire smoke.
Spokane air quality index (AQI) is at 50, the threshold for ‘good’ quality.
On Saturday, smoke from Washington, Oregon and Idaho wildfires swept into the Inland Northwest and blanketed Spokane. People woke up to ‘unhealthy’-level air and thick smoke. Spokane Clean Air Agency says westerly winds moved in Saturday night and carried that smoke east into Montana.
