A special air quality statement remains in effect over the Okanagan because of wildfire smoke.

On Sunday morning, the air quality index ranked the Central and North and Okanagan at a nine, which indicates a high risk.

The South Okanagan was ranked at an eight, also indicating a high risk.

The air quality throughout much of the region is expected to drop to a moderate risk Sunday night and stay fairly steady through to Monday.

Officials recommend people with breathing difficulties stay inside and use an air conditioner that filters air.
