7/8/15 Smoky Haze with Some Relief . . . in Central Washington



Expect smoke and haze to continue through Thursday.  North winds are pushing smoke down into to the Cascade Valleys and Basin.  More Central Washington communities may see air quality in the unhealthy for sensitive groups and unhealthy ranges.  

With high temperatures today and Thursday, air quality may improve slightly as smoke becomes aloft, returning some areas to moderate levels.

Starting Thursday night, a strong cold front arrives out of the Northwest with cooler temperatures and humidity.  Initial relief from the smoke before hazy conditions return due to lighter winds and cooler temperatures.  

Looking Ahead:  Combination of Northwest fires producing heavy smoke with humid air and lighter winds . . . smoke moves smoke down valleys - we could have a smoky start to next week.
