    Air pollution will be trapped near the ground. The lack of ventilation for over 72 hours will make pollution levels build up.

    Not good. You will be smoking yourself if you burn wood.

    look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.

      Actually last night we built a lovely wood fire as the temperature have been really cold especially when it is clear and sunny. No more wood fires. I thought that trapped pollution was what the weather alert was saying. Is this a reoccurring vortex slpit one that happens regularly? sounds so sci-fi.
