...AIR QUALITY IMPACTS FROM WILDFIRE SMOKE...
Tamarack, Dixie, Fly, and Bootleg wildfires will continue to
bring smoke and hazy skies along with poor air quality to the
region. The worst conditions remain immediately downwind of fires.
This includes, but is not limited to:
- Lake Almanor into Susanville, Doyle, and the Honey Lake Basin
- Reno, Minden, Carson City, Carson Valley, and Washoe Valley
- Fallon, Fernley, Yerington, and Hawthorne
- Far northern California and Nevada near the Oregon Border
Visibility reductions below 3 miles have occurred in multiple
locations across western Nevada and the Sierra with many air
quality sensors reporting unhealthy to hazardous conditions.
Light winds today will result in persistent smoke and haze with
substantially degraded air quality. Daytime mixing will help clear
things a bit, with light westerly winds late afternoon and early
evening further reducing smoke for a few hours in portions of
western Nevada and the Sierra. Unfortunately, conditions are once
again expected to worsen this evening and overnight.
For the latest air quality information, please visit
fire.airnow.gov or check with your county air quality division. If
you happen to be in an area with poor air quality, try to limit
outdoor activity as much as possible.
