Code Orange air quality alert day due to smoke, haze from Canadian wildfires

PITTSBURGH — Air quality will be a concern again Friday. A Code Orange Air Quality Alert continues for the area with wildfire smoke creating unhealthy conditions.

Dust off the umbrella and take that with you as you head out too. A few showers or an isolated storm may pop up after lunch into the early evening, but it won’t be enough to clear up the very dry conditions across the area.

Air quality will gradually improve Saturday and Sunday as the slow-moving system across the northeast that’s been steering smoke into our area finally moves out.

Rain chances will also increase late Sunday and Monday which will continue to bring air quality improvements.
