Valley smoke expected to dissipate

Smoke hovering in the Okanagan Valley, from fires in Alberta, is expected to dissipate over the next day or so.

Environment Canada Meteorologist, Doug Lundquist, says weather models indicated as early as last Friday that smoke would be heading our way.

"With a northeasterly flow around the systems that have been moving through Southern B.C., it was going to carry that smoke from Central Alberta into our region," says Lundquist.

"It's thinning today though. The source has been cut off. The flow in that part of Alberta is back out of the northwest."

Lundquist expects the smoke to clear a bit over the next day or two.

He says another low pressure system will arrive in the middle of the province later this week that will send smoke back in our direction, however, Lundquist believes that smoke will affect areas further north.
