Dixie-Jumbo Fires (ID) Wildfire
News – 8/16/2021

Today North Central Idaho today will experience smoke in the range of Moderate to Very Unhealthy on the Air Quality Index (AQI). A cold front moving in from the West will help reduce, but not eliminate, smoke in our area. The counties of Benewah and Latah should see the “Moderate” smoke move out by 11:00 am; the AQI should remain Good through Tuesday Afternoon. Lewiston may see Good AQI in the late afternoon for an hour or so, but may experience Very Unhealthy AQI overnight, then clearing mid morning Tuesday. Areas east of the Bedrock fire (Orofino) may experience Unhealthy AQI today through Tuesday morning. The Grangeville and Kamiah area may see USG to Unhealthy air quality most of the day, then Good to Moderate AQI overnight and into midmorning Tuesday. Riggins & Salmon will likely have USG to Unhealthy AQI today and tomorrow.
