SmokeSmoke and air quality conditions today will be similar to yesterday. With SW winds, smoke from the North Complex will continue to be transported towards areas between Chester and Janesville, including Susanville, Greenville, and Westwood. The Reno, Carson City, and Tahoe areas will continue to see smoke from the Creek and SQF Fires. Smoke will settle into valleys tonight, including the Honey Lake Valley and the Central Valley in the Oroville and Chico areas, and then slowly dissipate the following morning. Tomorrow, increased SW winds will lead to some improvement in air quality in areas not directly downwind of the North Complex.
