According to WeatherWatcher Carl Dinse, the National Weather Service is calling the forecast as “Tonight: Clear, areas of smoke.”

Carl says he has never seen a forecast like that.

The problem is the smoke from wildfires in Washington and British Columbia moving south in the the Puget Sound area.

The northern counties were named, with smoke possible as far south as Snohomish county on our northern border.

Air quality will vary from good to unhealthy for sensitive groups. Children, the elderly, and those with respiratory illnesses are the most at risk.
