* WHAT...An extended period of stagnant air, with light winds
and little vertical mixing, is expected.

* WHERE...Portions of North and North Central Idaho and Central,
East Central, North Central, Northeast and Southeast
Washington.

* WHEN...Until 3 PM PST Monday.

* IMPACTS...Poor air quality may cause issues for people with
respiratory problems.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Cold and very dry air over the region will
promote strong overnight inversions with poor mixing each
afternoon. Concentrations of pollutants near the surface are
expected to increase over time with the potential for degrading
air quality. A weak weather system on Monday will bring
increasing clouds with better ventilation and light
precipitation arriving Tuesday.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
