Finally you can step outside your door and not breathe in potential carcinogens from wildfire smoke, which is a totally normal thing to say nowadays. Yes, the air quality alert for the city of Edmonton has been lifted and conditions have all but returned to normal with an AQHI reading of just 2 (low risk) this morning.

Instead of smoke, we shall have rain! Forecasters say the clouds will start rolling in later this afternoon and becoming more prominent this evening with a 60 per cent chance of showers overnight and into tomorrow morning.

That should help clean up the air a little. Wax on, wax off.
