Burn codes keep our air clean

in Environment/Local News

Our beautiful weather pattern continues to start November, with chilly mornings and mild afternoons. Afternoon highs will be in the mid to upper 60s today warming into the mid-70s on Friday.

A nice weekend heads our way with partly sunny skies and upper 60s on Saturday and low 70s by Sunday.

We often see hazy skies and poor air quality during the winter months as pollution tends to get trapped in our valleys with no wind to mix things up.

To help keep our air cleaner, the burn code season begins today through February. The Washoe County Health District issues a green, yellow, or red burn code every day based on our air quality.

This only applies to wood-burning stoves or fireplaces in the Truckee Meadows and Washoe Valley. Gas fireplaces and pellet stoves are exempt because they burn much cleaner.

A yellow burn code means you should cut back or not use your wood-burning fireplace. A red burn code happens when our skies get real hazy and air quality dips in the unhealthy range, and wood burning is prohibited.

You can find the burn code each morning and evening during the weather broadcast on 2 News.

There are exemptions to the burn code issued if a wood-burning fireplace or stove is your only heat source and if you live on more than an acre of land. The Washoe County Health District also has a rebate program to swap out your wood-burning stove with a cleaner burning pellet or gas stove.
