Blue skies seen for a little bit

Paddlers were seen making their way across Okanagan Lake after the smoke cleared in Kelowna

Blue skies could be seen over the weekend as paddlers make their way across Okanagan Lake.

After Saturday night’s rainfall and strong winds moved through the Interior, residents were given a reprieve from the smoke.

Environment Canada issued a special air quality statement for the South, Central and North Okanagan at 1 p.m. Monday.

Those in the area should be on the lookout for adverse weather conditions and take necessary safety precautions.

However the Air Quality Health Index is still at a two out of 10 for both the South and Central Okanagan and at a three for the North.

In Kamloops the Air Quality Health Index is sitting at a nine out of 10 — 10 being a very high health risk.

Smoke continues to linger in the Okanagan and Shuswap Tuesday.
