Whitehouses – Extreme temperatures and wildfires prompted the Yukon parts of Canada to issue a special weather report.
The National Weather Agency says central and northern Yukon could see temperatures in the 20s, and overnight stays could be around for teenagers until mid-week, which could increase snowfall and streams.
He said wildfires had spread to central and northern parts of the state, reducing air quality.
The specific weather conditions apply to Beaver Creek, Dawson, Dempster, Faro-Ross River, Mayo, Old Crow and Peli-Karmax.
A number of new fires caused by lightning have been identified, particularly in the Ross River, Faroe and Karmax areas, according to a report released by the Yukon Durland Fire Department on Thursday.
He says thick and medium-sized smoke from Alaska and Yukon fires is causing “some uncertainty” in central Yukon temperatures.
