Moderate air expected in parts of Chelan county over the long weekend

Winds in Chelan County last evening turned out to be stronger than expected, resulting in Good air quality.

Cloudy skies with moderate winds an occasional showers will be the norm for most of the long weekend. This will keep fire activity in check and also help disperse smoke.

The Buck Creek and Saul fires are likely to cause some smoke impacts nearby, particularly in the evenings and nights. Expect air quality at Coles Corner, Plain, Leavenworth, Wenatchee and Chelan to be no worse than Moderate on occasion. Good air quality is expected during the day.

No major smoke concerns elsewhere in the state.
