We were down to a normal 15ug/m3 overnight as the smoke had basically cleared out. Unfortunately it has settled back in this morning.

We are back up to 40ug/m3 but the forecasts seem to point to it continuing to disperse. We should be all clear by the end of the day on Saturday.

Weekend Scattered showers Turn to Rain Storm next week.
