We were under a special air quality statement in Oxford County, thanks to the forest fires causing higher levels of pollution.
UPDATE: Environment Canada has called off the special weather statement for Oxford County.
During an interview with Heart FM earlier this week, Warning Preparedness Meteorologist Trudy Kidd said a low-pressure system would be moving in this weekend, bringing clean southerly winds without wildfire smoke.
OXFORD COUNTY - We're in for another day of smoke-filled skies in Southwestern Ontario.
Environment Canada says we're seeing higher levels of pollution in the air due to the forest fires in Quebec and northeastern Ontario.
The smoke could be harmful to everyone's health but kids, seniors, pregnant mothers, and people with heart or lung disease (ex: asthma) could be more at risk.
You should stop all outdoor activities and contact your doctor if you start to experience shortness of breath, severe coughing, wheezing, dizziness or chest pains.
We're currently under a special air quality statement in Oxford County.
