*Said in a Jim Carrey voice from “The Mask”*

There’s plenty of smoke floating around in the air. In case you hadn’t already noticed the hazy skies, they’ll continue to build in and fade out over the course of the next week. This looks to be a long term fixture so long as our jet stream continues to originate from the West Coast up through the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia.

Extreme fire conditions have materialized and several corresponding fires as a result of dry conditions with extreme heat.

Sky conditions for each day going forward will vary a bit depending on how the smoke mixes out in the atmosphere. It is expected that the majority of it stays elevated and that’s good news for those susceptible to lowered air quality. It will make for some orange/red sunsets for some time.
