Montana, Idaho wildfires send smoke to Taos

Montana, Idaho wildfires send smoke to Taos”

Fires have scorched more than 500,000 acres already, and smoke is even starting to affect nearby states - including Iowa. However, over the past couple of days, the winds at the surface have been out of the north and northwest, bringing the smoke from the wildfires down here at the surface.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment recommends that if smoke is thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood, you may want to remain indoors.

Fires are burning in Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Washington, Oregon and California.

As many Americans are keeping their eyes on Houston following the Hurricane Harvey aftermath, Montana continues to deal with wildfires gaining ground across the state. Locations impacted included Denver, Boulder, Ft. If visibility is less than 5 miles in your neighborhood, smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy. A Red Flag warning indicates conditions that are ideal for the rapid spread of wildfires - including low humidity, high temperatures, and the possibility for thunderstorms.

Windy conditions this evening will not clear the air as the front is coming from Montana, so hazy skies will stick around Tuesday even though it will be much cooler.
