Alta. wildfire smoke causing poor air quality in west-central Sask.

Smoke from wildfires in California continues to move into the area.

Albertans across the province noticed the taste and smell of smoke hanging in the air, with many towns and cities air qualities deteriorating throughout the day.

According to the air district, wind is expected to blow smoke into the North Bay and parts of the inland East Bay Monday and Tuesday but the smoke is expected to stay aloft and not impact air quality at the ground level.

That means those at risk, including children, seniors and people with a heart or lung disease should reduce or reschedule strenuous activities outdoors.

Environment Canada officials said smoky conditions can cause increased coughing, throat irritation, headaches or shortness of breath.

Air quality conditions can change quickly and can vary considerably hour-by-hour.
