Smoky skies to return Wednesday morning

Oh, the difference a day makes!

Several areas in Deschutes County were registering hazardous air quality on the E::Space Labs AQI (halfway down our weather page) on Monday, but that was not the case Tuesday. For the most part, all of Central Oregon was either in the good or moderate range, even with a light haze across the horizon.

Strong northwesterly breezes should change that narrative, however. The smoke is expected to grow denser as the day by Wednesday morning.

The bulk of the smoke is coming from three fires in particular - the Middle Fork Complex Fire in Lane County, the Bull Complex Fire south of the Mt. Hood National Forest, and the Schneider Springs Fire burning in Washington state.

Meanwhile, temperatures should remain below average for through most of your extended forecast.
