Smoke report for 7-9-19

Special Statement

Heavy smoke impacts in Kenai peninsula, Yukon and Tanana
valleys including Fairbanks and southern Kenai areas.

Map shows locations of fires and predicted air quality for portions of Interior and South-Central Alaska.

Fire

CENTRAL/EASTERN INTERIOR: Winds will switch to the west
today.
SOUTHCENTRAL: The Swan Lake Fire is continuing to see hot,
dry conditions and consuming acres. Similar winds as
yesterday.

Smoke

CENTRAL/EASTERN INTERIOR: Heavy smoke impacts across
the entire interior. Conditions will not improve with the wind
switch due the number of fires across the area – except for the
far western interior.
SOUTHCENTRAL: Winds will a see a southerly component
today which should help push smoke into the Anchorage bowl
and up the Mat-Su valley. This should spell some relief for
areas south of the fire.
SOUTHEAST: Smoke should get pushed west of Juneau and out
to sea.
SOUTHWEST: Smoke should thin today as the wind switches.
