Today's weather trivia: 10 December

2003: An atmospheric inversion under calm winds caused a bout of smog over
Edmonton, AB, prompting health officials to warn residents with respiratory
illnesses to stay indoors. The hazy skies and restricted visibility less
than 5 km lasted for 7 hours before stronger winds ended the smog episode.
The particulate sources came from vehicle exhaust, home fireplaces or wood
stoves, or all three.
