Lolo Peak Fire News Release

Air Quality Information August 13, 2017

Incident: Lolo Peak Fire Wildfire
Released: 8/13/2017

Smoke: The Bitterroot Valley will see much better ventilation this afternoon due to increased wind activity associated with the passage of a dry cold front. Moderate smoke levels should persist into the early evening though with the expected increase in wildfire smoke the valley will see heavy pooling of smoke later this evening and throughout the night.

Fire: Wildfires will become much more active this afternoon when wind velocities significantly increase following the passage of a dry cold front over western Montana. A red flag warning for abundant lightning and higher velocity winds are expected to result in new wildfire starts and perimeter growth on current wildfires.

Other: The area will return to a pattern of warm and dry conditions for the remainder of the week.
