The Canadian fire season has ended, and we have suspended smoke forecasting. Operational smoke forecasts will resume in April of next year.
This BlueSky Canada smoke forecast is considered experimental because it is produced by a system that is an ongoing research project and subject to uncertainties in weather forecasts, smoke dispersion and fire emissions. For example, the system uses satellite detections to locate fires. If there is cloud cover or smoke that obscures the detection of fires from space, the resulting smoke from these fires will not be accounted for in the forecast.
NOTE: This forecast does not include smoke from sources that are outside the boundaries of the forecast domain. The BlueSky Framework currently does not have a mechanism to transport smoke into the model domain from external sources. Please use the Canada-wide forecast to evaluate whether long-range smoke transport may affect your region.
