WHITEHORSE — Higher temperatures and smoke from wildfires have led Environment Canada to issue special weather information to parts of Yukon today.

According to the National Meteorological Agency, temperatures in the early 20s can be seen in central and northern Yukon, and until the middle of the following week, overnight hovering around the late teens may occur, and the spill will melt snow. The flow of rivers may increase.

Wildfire smoke is said to have spread to the central and northern parts of the territory, degrading air quality.

Special weather forecasts apply to Beaver Creek, Dawson, Dempster, Faro-Ross River, Mayo, Old Crow, Perry-Carmac.

According to the Yukon Wilderness Fire Activity Report published Thursday, many new lightning fires have been identified, mainly in the Ross River, Faro and Carmack areas.

Thick medium-level smoke from the fires of Alaska and Yukon is said to cause "a little uncertainty" in the temperature forecasts in central Yukon.
