Five new large wildfires started in Oregon over the weekend which will created moderate smoke impacts in parts of central and eastern Oregon. As of this morning, DEQ monitors in LaGrande, Enterprise, and Sisters were all showing moderate air quality. Surprisingly, the monitor in John Day was showing good air quality. The DEQ monitor in Baker City is not reporting data.
During the night, smoke is expected to drain into the valleys. Communities down valley from the fires are expected to received smoke impacts. Any smoke reports from Baker City or other locations around the state receiving smoke would be appreciated.
