August 22, 2015   Smoky and Hazy in Portland

Smoke coming from the Cougar Creek Fire near Mt. Adams and fires east of the Cascades is moving into Portland this morning with the east wind.  The smoke looks like it will be staying over Portland through the weekend, and will start clearing around 6 pm Sunday evening.
