Watches & Warnings

Air Quality Alert
Issued: 10:10 AM MDT Oct. 18, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Air quality health advisory for wildfire smoke from 800 am
Friday until 900 am Saturday...

The Colorado department of public health and environment has
issued the following...

What... air quality health advisory for wildfire smoke.

Where... Ouray, Gunnison counties.

When... 800 am Friday October 18 to 900 am Saturday October 19

Additional details... periods of moderate to heavy smoke are
expected from the Cow Creek wildfire, located in eastern Ouray
County approximately 9 miles southeast of Ridgeway. Winds will
generally be out of the west or northwest during the day on
Friday, transporting smoke to areas east or southeast of the fire.
Daytime smoke impacts will generally be limited to the uncompaghre
National Forest in eastern Ouray and southern Gunnison counties.
Overnight Friday night and into Saturday morning, winds out of the
south or southwest will persist at the fire, though winds will be
light to breezy overnight. This may continue to push smoke into
the Uncompahgre National Forest. The likelihood of rain and snow
showers increases on Friday, and could decrease smoke production,
however breezy winds and residual smoke production will keep smoke
impacts possible in the immediate vicinity of the fire.

Health information... public health recommendations: if smoke is
thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain
indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease,
respiratory illnesses, the very Young, and the elderly. Consider
limiting outdoor activity when moderate to heavy smoke is present.
Consider relocating temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is
making you ill. If visibility is less than 5 miles in smoke in
your neighborhood, smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy.
