Smoke
Smoke is anticipated to be similar to yesterday. A westerly flow should keep smoke from California fires south of the forecast zone. However, some smoke may drift in especially in the southern portion of the forecast area. Northwest flow tomorrow is expected to keep the forecast area mostly clear of smoke. Locations adjacent to local fires may see greater impacts due to ongoing fire activity.
