Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone Air Quality Alert in place

A Yellowstone Air Quality Alert is in place, as the National Park and much of the surrounding area is facing air-quality issues to due to smoke from Pacific Northwest wildfires.

The alert was issued by the National Weather Service’s Riverton office on behalf of the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality, Air Quality Division, and the Wyoming Department of Health. It covers much of Northwest Wyoming, including Yellowstone National Park, Absaroka Mountains, Cody Foothills, Jackson Hole, Teton and Gros Ventre Mountains and the Upper Wind River Basin.

Technically, the alert lasts through 1 p.m. today, but given the weather conditions, don’t be surprised if it is extended.
