Front Range Action Day for Particulates Until at least 4 p.m. 10/20/2020
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has issued an ACTION DAY ALERT at 4PM on Monday, October 19, 2020 for the Front Range Urban Corridor from Douglas County north to Larimer and Weld counties, including the Denver-Boulder area, Fort Collins and Greeley.
Moderate to heavy smoke can be expected through Tuesday morning for locations in Larimer and Boulder counties near the Cameron Peak, Calwood, and Lefthand Canyon wildfires. Lesser, but moderate, amounts of smoke can be found below these fires along the Front Range Urban Corridor, particularly from Ft. Collins southward to Loveland, Longmont, and Boulder. However drier and windier weather during the day on Tuesday could increase fire activity, so an increase in smoke will be possible by Tuesday afternoon for larger sections of the Front Range from Ft. Collins southward to Denver.
This Particulates Action Day Alert will remain in effect until at least 4 p.m. Tuesday, October 20, 2020.
