Outlook for Central Washington Smoke

Smoke:
Rain overnight has improved air quality significantly. Expect patchy smoke and haze to occur in valley bottoms. With the continued stormy pattern, smoke production from fires should decrease and air sheds should ventilate over the next several days leading to improved air quality. Smoke from the Sawmill fire will impact communities.

Fire:
The Jolly Mountain fire is currently burning in the Yakima River Basin on the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest north of Cle Elum, WA. The current fire size is 36,808 acres, with minimal fire behavior. The Uno Peak fire is currently burning north of Lake Chelan with a current size of 8,726 acres with isolated torching and backing. The Norse Peak fire is burning northwest of Yakima. The current size is 52,502 acres with moderate fire behavior.

Other:
Another low pressure system is forecast to hit the Pacific Northwest over the next several days. Air quality will improve with increased moisture and airflow across the region.
