7/30/2015 Wildfire Smoke Forecast, north central WA

Looks like smoke will settle in the Methow Valley tonight, perhaps degrading air quality to the unhealthy range.

Light NW wind Friday AM should clear the air a bit, but the light SW and variable winds may allow smoke to build up again.

Pattern may repeat until a Tuesday evening when the long range forecast predict a cold front out of the NW…more to follow.

 

You can see the plume originating from the top of Lake Chelan. http://sat.wrh.noaa.gov/satellite/showsat.php?wfo=pqr&area=west&type=vis&size=1
