Southcentral: A southerly breeze continues today bringing higher humidity, lower temperatures and reduced fire activity on Swan Lake fire.
Central/Eastern Interior: Heavy smoke impacts across the entire interior. Unhealthy impacts from McGrath east to Nenana through Fairbanks area to Deltana. Also unhealthy in numerous areas downwind of fires in the upper Yukon.
