Due to surrounding wildfires, smoke has been coming in and out of the area with the wind. Our immediate area is not in danger, however smoke comes and goes, changing air clarity throughout the day. We may see haze in the morning and blue skies just hours later, depending on how the winds shift.
There is a promising outlook for clearing smoke in the coming days but there are a lot of variables that can alter the final outcome.
Fire crews continue to make progress on the fires. Carr Fire (Redding) is 45% contained. Ferguson Fire (Yosemite) is 38% contained. The Medocino Complex has 21-58% containment. You can track the containment progress here.
