The Upper Hunter Air Quality Monitoring Network Winter 2018 Seasonal Newsletter provides an overview of air quality in the region during the winter 2018 period (1 June to 31 August 2018).

Upper Hunter air quality for 1 June to 31 August 2018 was generally good to fair. Muswellbrook and Singleton recorded very good to fair air quality indices within national benchmarks 93% and 97% of the time, respectively. Conditions in the region continued to be dry and warm, resulting in elevated particle levels from local sources combined with long-range dust transport, during widespread dust storms.
