The Central District of Victoria has been issued with an air quality warning for today and Saturday as smoke from bushfires in the east blows across much of the state.
Smoke is likely to be visible in the air across the North Central and Northern Country weather districts, while Melbourne expected to have low to moderate air quality throughout the next two days with the worst conditions to be found in the eastern suburbs.
The Environmental Protection Authority said there was no immediate threat to the community.
But those who were sensitive to smoke - like people with heart or lung conditions, women who were pregnant or people over the age of 65 - should try to stay indoors and limit prolonged or heavy physical activity.
