SPOKANE, Wash. — Air quality has dropped into the “very unhealthy” range for parts of Eastern Washington and North Idaho. 

Wildfires have been producing lots of smoke and hot, dry conditions are expected to persist into the weekend. 

More smoke is moving into the area because of northerly winds. That could change throughout the weekend, but smoke will be sticking around for the majority of Friday. 

The hazardous air means people should spend as little time outside as possible, avoid heavy exercise and keep your windows and doors shut in order to keep clean air inside.
