Many areas across Western Ontario are under special weather alerts over air quality.

Thunder Bay – Weather – A far different forecast. The scorching heat has gone.

  • Savant Lake – Sturgeon Lake
  • Sioux Lookout – Eastern Lac Seul

  • Red Lake – Woodland Caribou Park
  • Ignace – English River
  • Fort Frances – Emo – Rainy River
  • Sandy Lake – Weagamow Lake – Deer Lake

High levels of air pollution due to smoke from ongoing forest fires. Smoke plumes from active fires in northwestern Ontario and eastern Manitoba have resulted in poor air quality. Low visibilities can also be expected, particularly in areas closer to the fires.
