The weather is forecast to change and as a result many of us will see some improvement in our air quality conditions but relief is not likely to arrive until late in the weekend. However, if you are nearby one of the fires or in a more sheltered area where winds take longer to reach you, your clearing may be delayed in arriving or not show up at all! Some of us may simply get a different flavor of smoke as the old smoke just gets replaced with new smoke from a different direction. If you do get a break from the smoke enjoy it while you can. A typical summer weather pattern is sure to return and smoke will likely be in the forecast for many of us again before the season is over.
