I actually assume there’s something occurring between the smoke and fog.
California smoke returned to northern Oregon and Washington right this moment (see satellite tv for pc picture at 1:31 PM). Fairly dense over western Oregon and clearly evident over southwest Washington.
The smoke was clearly evident at 12:50 PM from the Crystal Mountain cam trying in the direction of Mount Rainier
And by 3:10 PM the mountain was nearly obscured by smoke.
Some of the smoke is reaching the floor, notably over the Willamette Valley, with declines of air high quality additionally evident over Puget Sound. This is indicated by the areas of reasonable air high quality within the 2 PM observations proven beneath.
Seattle observations (10th and Weller) present the decline in air high quality this afternoon (enhance in particle concentrations).
The newest NOAA HRRRsmoke forecasts of particles within the ambiance is proven beneath.
First, the forecast for five PM exhibits substantial concentrations over California and Oregon, with reasonable quantities of smoke transferring into southern and southeast Washington.
Fortunately, the existence of westerly winds over western Washington will promote clearing of the smoke from Seattle to Bellingham by 11 AM tomorrow (Thursday).
The enhance in low-level smoke concentrations seems to contributing to the upkeep of the fog layer (see satellite tv for pc picture at 2:30 PM), a layer that was predicted to be far much less intensive presently by the most effective numerical fashions.
If the fog remains to be in place at 5 PM over the inside, we are going to know there’s a critical concern, one which is likely to be as a result of results of smoke. As described in a earlier weblog, there are substantial the explanation why smoke might contribute to fog retention.
