Low level smoke is likely to return to Western Washington
beginning Sunday. Air quality could possibly deteriorate to
unhealthy levels Monday and Tuesday.
The surface flow pattern will turn offshore and northerly on
Sunday. Smoke from British Columbia fires is likely to spread
south into Western Washington. Northern areas will be affected
first, but eventually all of Western Washington could have thick
smoke near the surface. It is possible that air quality could
return to the unhealthy levels of earlier this week on Monday and
Temperatures on Monday and Tuesday will be in the 80s to low 90s.
Current forecasts call for a marine push Tuesday night or
Wednesday that will cool things off and also push most of the
smoke out of the area.
