Melbourne Air Quality – Wednesday 5pm Update – Mitcham Event Going Ahead

Smoke haze continues to be a concern for Park Street events. Air quality over Melbourne today is currently rated as VERY POOR but slowly improving. We are waiting to see the timing and effects of the forecast wind change, forecast for this afternoon.

Today’s event at Mitcham:  air quality has improved significantly this afternoon, so the event will go ahead (thunderstorms permitting – these should have passed through by 7pm).

Thursday is expected to have improved air quality so we expect the event at Donvale Pines to go ahead.  We will continue to monitor the EPA Airwatch website and notify if things change.
