Denver Metro Action Day for Particulates, 1/15-1/16

Current Forecast. From CDPHE

The Denver Metro Air Pollution Forecast states there is an Indoor Burning Restriction in effect until at least 4PM Monday, January 16, 2017. According to the forecast, "Fine Particulate Matter concentrations are expected to reach the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups category on Sunday and Monday, mainly in the Denver metro area. Improving conditions are expected during the day on Monday as the wind increases with periods of snow." This air quality can cause respiratory symptoms in usually sensitive individuals and possibly aggravate heart or lung disease in people with cardiopulmonary disease and older adults.
