7/26/2014 Air Quality Report

Smoke Synopsis:
High pressure builds throughout the weekend and will linger around through early next week. Drying and warming trend will continue as temperatures rise to above normal levels, expect an upslope/downslope diurnal pattern.  Look for the fires to become more active. Smoke will be visible coming from within the fire perimeters as interior areas continue to burn and burnout operations begin.  Look for smoke to settle into low-lying/valley areas early and lifting out as daytime temperatures increase.
