For the first time in nearly two weeks, blue bird skies and unfiltered sunshine – normal conditions – returned to Metro Vancouver.

A change in weather caused the wildfire smoke to largely dissipate by mid-morning, and conditions rapidly improved as the day progressed. As well, partial cloud cover early in the day transitioned into almost-cloudless blue skies.

The drastic improvement to air quality also led to the end of Metro Vancouver’s Air Quality Advisory, which was the longest Air Quality Advisory in the region’s history.

The forecast of rainfall beginning late Saturday night and continuing through Sunday afternoon will further improve air quality. There is also a chance of thunderstorms on Sunday morning.

It’s great to finally be able to see the boat show again
