The National Weather Service in Medford has issued an Air Stagnation Advisory until 10 a.m. Tuesday for our region, including east Curry County, Central Douglas County, Josephine County, Jackson County and the Klamath Basin.
Strong inversions and limited mixing are expected to persist early this week, leading to periods of poor air quality.
Air stagnation may lead to poor air quality, which could cause issues for people with respiratory problems.
People with respiratory illness should follow their physician`s advice for dealing with high levels of air pollution during periods of stagnant air.
State air quality agencies highly recommend that no outdoor burning occur and that residential wood burning devices be limited as much as possible. According to state air quality agencies, prolonged periods of stagnant air can hold pollutants close to the ground where people live and breathe. Check with your local burn agency for any current restrictions in your area.
