Good weekend to get outside in Oregon

Air quality is good today throughout most of Oregon, and it should stay that way through the weekend. Areas near local fires may continue to experience fluctuating levels of moderate to unhealthy smoke. This includes the Oakridge and Medford areas and other areas throughout the Cascades.

Oregon’s wildfire smoke team expects more smoke to return to the state mid next week. Health officials recommend people refill inhalers and other medications while the air quality is good.

Smoke levels can change rapidly depending on weather. Check current conditions on the Oregon Smoke Information Blog, DEQ’s Air Quality Index, or by downloading the free OregonAIR app on your smartphone.
