The area's air quality isn't bad, but you can definitely smell the smoke.

 

Bruce Prudhomme is with the central Oregon Interagency Dispatch Center.

 

"I went to the satellite imagery and pulled it up for the western U.S. and the satellite is showing smoke centered here and winds are rotating clockwise.  And smoke is coming from the south, southwest and its blowing smoke and the odor you are detecting there."

 

We are expected to smell the smoke for awhile, since the winds are expected to continue from the south, bringing smoke mostly from the northern California fires.
