A strong temperature inversion this morning is trapping smoke from ongoing wildfires, essentially capping the atmosphere and preventing air from rising. This allows the smoke to become more concentrated close to the ground, making it more noticeable across the area. Air quality will improve this afternoon and evening.
Drought likely to persist
Despite some rain on Friday, drought conditions will likely persist given the lack of significant rain over the last few months. The latest weather pattern suggests another dry week next week leading to a persistent drought. The next big chance for rain may not happen until Thanksgiving week which could lead to a worsening drought in the coming weeks.
