The Sleepy Hollow Fire has very little smoke production at this point.
Three weather words for today: HOT, DRY, & WINDY.  NW winds will increase this afternoon and cool temperatures a bit.  Wednesday, the hot and dry pattern continues through at least Saturday, and likely longer.
Other fire starts in mountainous areas have started to pop up.  With highs near 100F today and then topping out each day above 90F, wildfire smoke should not be an issue for the next few days.
