A smoky start to the day

Posted: Updated:

Good Thursday.  There is still a great deal of smoke billowing up from a number of wild fires around the Tennessee Valley.  Winds will not be as strong as yesterday, but we will still have north winds today from 5 to 10 mph blowing the smoke around and helping the fires in their attempt to spread.  With the poor air quality, I would suggest everyone being impacted by the smoke stay indoors as much as possible Skies this afternoon otherwise will be sunny with a high of 70.  This evening we will hopefully see some of the smoke recede as winds die down a bit more. 

Friday will be partly cloudy with a high of 70.  We will continue to see areas of thick smoke around the area.

For the weekend we will be cool and sunny.  Highs will be in the low to mid 60s and lows will drop into the upper 30s and low 40s.
