Washington sends its smoke our way

By Jayson Jacoby / The Baker City Herald

Thanks, Washington.

Smoke from large wildfires in Central Washington rode the wind straight into Baker County overnight.

The smoke, although not dense at ground level, was so thick higher up that it more resembled an overcast, except tan rather than gray.

Fortunately, the pall shouldn't persist.

The National Weather Service predicts that the upper level wind direction will shift from north to south over the next day or so, which should push the smoke away from rather than toward Baker County.

The smoke plume is quite apparent on satellite photos.
