7/6/15 Calm with Smoky Haze

Hot, sunny conditions to continue through today. Northwest timber fires and several fast moving brush fires are producing smoke, creating a generalized haze in Central Washington.  See satellite image below.

Tonight NW wind should push more smoke into Central WA.  Local and newly arrived smoke will settle in most valley locations bringing compromised air quality.

Tuesday through Friday, we may have poorer air quality than we have seen so far this season  . . . expect a range from moderate to unhealthy for sensitive groups.

Stronger winds Friday afternoon should clear the air.
