Smoke and haze will continue to linger in the Sierra Nevada and the Sacramento Valley. The 678,369-acre Dixie Fire, the 135,714-acre Monument Fire, the 110,132-acre McFarland Fire and the 65,474-acre Caldor Fire are the main contributors to the degraded air quality.

According to the National Weather Service in Sacramento: Lighter winds expected across the region Friday, then another trough is forecast to brush by to the north on Saturday. We’ll have to keep an eye on this one too since the current trough looked to take a similar track before digging further south and bringing stronger winds to NorCal.
