Air quality improves across Utah after weekend snowstorm

UTAH — Air quality issues continued to worsen this weekend, with Cache County reaching the poorest air quality of the inversion cycle at 111.2 micrograms per cubic meter on Sunday.

While the snowstorm that moved into the area Sunday largely cleared or reduced the severity of the inversion events across the state, there are still areas with elevated amounts of PM 2.5 and ozone problems. Currently, the Utah Department of Environmental Quality 3-Day Air Quality Forecast has all counties where testing occurs either staying the same or marginally improving in the case of Duchesne County.

Current conditions show all counties are below the National Ambient Air Quality Start of 35 micrograms per cubic meter over 24 hours. Uintah County is less than one microgram per cubic meter from reaching the standard. The county also has elevated ozone levels of .0084 parts per million, considered unhealthy for sensitive groups and close to the classification of unhealthy for all.

To stay up to date with air quality and advisories issued by the DEQ, download the UtahAir app, available on both apple and android, or visit the air quality website where current conditions are shown.
