Smoky skies continue
by Pinedale Online!
August 20, 2015

Wildland fires continue to burn actively in the west United States bringing smokey skies to western Wyoming. Large wildfires are burning in Washington (18), Oregon (12), California (13), Idaho (15) and Montana (12), Arizona (1). Smoky conditions are expected to continue through Friday and then clear out with windy conditions over the weekend.

A ridge of high pressure will bring mainly dry conditions and slightly warmer temperatures for today. Gusty winds, combined with dry air, will bring extreme fire weather conditons across southern Wyoming. See the Red Flag Warnings for more details. Smoke from the fires out west will also continue across the state today. An upper level disturbance will approach the region on Friday, bringing warm and windy conditions. This will lead to more elevated fire danger across the state. Showers, and possibly some higher elevation snow, will then be possible Friday night into Saturday morning across northern Wyoming. Cool and mainly dry conditions are then expected during the day Saturday. (National Weather Service)
