It could be yet another smoky weekend in the region. 

After a few clear days, light smoke has returned to the area, sparking fears that another weekend could be plagued by poor air quality. 

"[The smoke] is a lot more diffused than it was before," said Sarah Hoffman with Environment Canada. "Still a lot of active wildfires...and some fires not too far away from the Edmonton area." 

"In comparison to the start of the May long weekend, [the smoke] will be a lot less intense." 

Conditions over the weekend will be fairly similar to the last with daytime highs hitting the mid-20s. There is also a chance for some rain to fall. 

"We do expect some unsettled weather with some hit-or-miss showers or thunderstorms over the weekend," said Hoffman. "It is possible we see the smoke return at some point over the weekend, but it's going to be tricky to know for sure." 

Hoffman says a wait-and-see approach is probably best for those looking to get out and about to make up for last weekend. 

"If you wake up and the conditions are good, you've got good air quality. Get out there and enjoy it while you can, because it's not necessarily guaranteed."

Fire risk does remain very high across much of the province, and Hoffman is reminding people that, while the conditions seem to be improving, it is still important to be cautious. 

"We are not out of the woods just yet."
