Environment Canada and the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness has issued a Special Air Quality statement for Nova Scotia.

Smoke from distant forest fires may cause a reduction to air quality.

Locations: most of Nova Scotia.

Time span: this afternoon into Wednesday.

Remarks: Smoke from forest fires in western Canada is expected to spread over Nova Scotia this afternoon. While most of the smoke will remain aloft, some may descend to near ground level causing reduced air quality. Associated haze will likely give the sun a reddish appearance.
