Sep 17-21, 2019 The cold front, which brought light showers Monday, is also allowing cooler temperatures in our area through the week. Warmer temperatures return on Friday and continue through the weekend. Forecasting models indicate smoke from the Walker wildfire, and other smaller wildfires, is being diverted to the east the first part of this week. With cooler temperatures and diversion of wildfire smoke all areas are expected to have GOOD AQI status in PM 2.5, PM 10 and Ozone.
