a dense smoke advisory remains in effect from 2 pm this afternoon
to 8 pm pdt this evening.
* visibility: dropping to near one mile at times...especially
during the late afternoon and evening when additional smoke
from the king fire is most likely to spread into western
* impacts: periods of dense smoke will likely result in unhealthy
air quality. outdoor activities are discouraged. travel may be
impacted due to low visibility on interstate 80... highway
395... and highway 50.
a dense smoke advisory is issued when smoke from wildfires
significantly reduces visibilities...making it difficult to see
and breathe. the smoke will continue to be a problem until the
fire becomes less active...or a more favorable weather pattern
disperses the smoke. persons in the advisory area should avoid
prolonged exposure to the smoke and stay indoors.
