September 2, 2013 - Corral Complex and Forks Complex Air Quality Report




Yesterday, September 1, 2013

Not a lot of change in the weather pattern or fire activity yesterday.  Clouds and relative humidity values kept a lid on fire behavior on the Corral Complex.  The Forks Complex has experienced lower RH values over the past several days yet no significant increase in fire activity.  As a result, air quality at all locations remained good.

Monday, September 2, 2013

Light breezes and accompanying precipitation in some locations have helped disperse smoke throughout the area.  Overnight smoke accumulation remains low at all locations as these passing cells capture and flush particulate.  Seasonal temperatures and breezy under partly cloudy skies with scattered showers will be the order of the day, and air quality will remain good throughout the area.

Outlook for Tuesday and beyond

Today’s weather pattern will continue through Thursday, with moderate south/southwest winds and elevated relative humidities.  Smoke production is minimal and accumulations will be light, with all stations continuing to maintain good air quality.  The outlook for a change in our weather pattern toward the end of the week remains strong.  The question of the hour is the degree to which moisture we receive until then will offset the approaching winds and lower RH values.
