This is an update to my previous blog Smog Alert: Southern, Central & Parts of Northern and Eastern Ontario June 20, 2012.

Effective immediately, the Ontario Ministry of the Environment in Canada has lifted the Smog Advisory (June 20, 2012) for the following forecast regions because increasing wind speeds ahead of a cold front are allowing for good mixing and dispersion of pollutants, resulting in cleaner air in the air quality forecast regions listed as follows:

  • Burk’s Falls-Bayfield Inlet
  • Elliot Lake-Ranger Lake
  • Greater Sudbury and Vicinity
  • Manitoulin-Northshore-Killarney
  • North Bay-West Nipissing

Hot, sunny conditions, combined with a southwesterly flow of polluted air from the U.S. and local build-up of pollutants are resulting in elevated smog levels across southern, central, and parts of eastern Ontario.

This advisory will remain in effect until further notice.

The details of the smog forecast for these affected regions are as follows:
