I will say that the smaoke can travel amazing distances. We left Rock Springs WY a few days ago and the skies have been smoky gray for a week out there. Reportedly from southern Cali fires. Must have been high since you cannot smell it.

Early/mid September could still be a **** shoot.
Be flexible in your plans this year I’d recommend. Hasn’t been a good year in the PNW thus far.

We have a trip planned through Montana, Idaho, Washington, and then down the Oregon coast. We would leave in early September. With the current smoke and fire situation is that still doable?


Hopefully we will have rain by then.

air quality is to improve this week.

the upper level high pressure will drift west as the month progresses.

so says my weather guy.

Well you are about 2.5 weeks from starting, anything could happen between now and then.
Keep your options open, and watch weather and fires.

Count on plenty of fires well past the end of September. That would include some of those currently burning and new ones.
