Back to Smoky Skies Monday

September 16, 2012

The visible satellite image this evening (it’s almost dark) clearly shows thick smoke from the Cascade Creek fire near Mt. Adams and central Washington fires headed right for us.  Windflow is switching around to the northeast and that means a mucky day tomorrow, especially in the morning.

Here’s the link…it’ll show something until about 8pm, then go all dark:

And the last (barely) lit image showing the clusters of smoke to our northeast:
