Here’s why we’ve got all that smoke outside

From Prairie City in eastern Oregon to Willamina - the winds are pushing the smoke west and slightly southward.

From Prairie City in eastern Oregon to Willamina – the winds are pushing the smoke west and slightly southward.

Here’s the lastest “smoke-cast” from National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration.:

OFFSHORE WINDS WILL PERSIST THROUGH MUCH OF SUNDAY…KEEPING THE THICK SMOKY LAYER OVER NORTHWESTERN OREGON IN PLACE MOST OF THE WEEKEND. BY LATE SUNDAY THE FLOW WILL TURN ONSHORE…PUSHING THE SMOKE EASTWARD AND RETURNING SEASONABLE TEMPERATURES AND BLUE SKIES BY MONDAY. THE REMAINDER OF THE WORK WEEK APPEARS DRY UNDER SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT AND SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES.

THE CURRENT BIG ITEM FOR DISCUSSION IS THE SMOKEY SKIES. A DEEP LAYER OF EASTERLY WINDS HAS CARRIED SMOKE FROM SEVERAL DIFFERENT FIRES ACROSS EASTERN OREGON AND SOUTH WASHINGTON ACROSS NORTHWEST OREGON. THE SMOKE HAS BROUGHT VISIBILITIES DOWN TO 2 MILES AT MANY LOCATIONS IN THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY, THE CASCADE FOOTHILLS AND THE CASCADES, ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE EUGENE AREA. THE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY SHOWS THE AIR QUALITY IS UNHEALTHY IN THESE LOCATIONS WITH THE LOW VISIBILITIES. THE FEDERAL EPA HAS ISSUED AN AIR QUALITY ALERT THROUGH SUNDAY AFTERNOON. THE AIR QUALITY MAY WORSEN LATE TONIGHT INTO SUNDAY MORNING AS THE WINDS EASE A BIT…AND A SUBSIDENCE INVERSION SETS UP.

THE WINDS WILL TURN ONSHORE EARLY SUNDAY AFTERNOON…BUT THE CLEARING OF SMOKE WILL BE SLOW IN THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY AND EASTWARD. WEST WINDS WILL INCREASE LATER IN THE AFTERNOON AND BEGIN GRADUAL CLEARING OF THE SMOKE THROUGH MONDAY MORNING.
