Air quality in Bosnia's Sarajevo Canton area improves

The Expert Body for Coordination and Supervision of the Implementation of the Plan of Intervention Measures in Cases of Excessive Air Pollution has canceled the Preparedness episode due to the decreasing trends in the concentration of polluting PM 10 particles in the air, as well as the forecasted weather conditions.

The improvement of air quality will continue in this area because of the current weather conditions and a slower decrease in the concentration of this pollutant, which is recorded at the measuring points of Ilija and Vogo a.

The Federal Hydrometeorological Institute predicts that occasional precipitation and wind of varying strength will favor maintaining a favorable situation in the next three days, according to the synoptic forecast of the Federal Hydrometeorological Institute. Occasionally, weaker temperature inversions are expected, which can lead to oscillations in PM 10 concentrations with increasing values, mainly in the evening hours.

The state of air quality for the Sarajevo Canton area is monitored via the website of the Federal Hydrometeorological Institute The published data is collected from reference measuring stations managed by experts at the Institute for CS public health and represents the most reliable and relevant source of data on air quality.
