Above: Forecast for wildfire smoke at 10 a.m. EST November 9, 2016.
Smoke from wildfires in Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia have been creating very unpleasant and in some cases unhealthful conditions for residents in the southeast. However by Wednesday afternoon the skies in the area should look much better according to a forecast from NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory. Some localized areas in the Northwest will also experience smoke today, possibly from prescribed fires.
So much smoke in Jackson County that it looks like it’s about to rain. @wxbrad pic.twitter.com/p97VKATjs0

Drive carefully in the Nantahala Gorge. Brushfires in the area have caused dense smoke along roads Pictured is Silvermine Church pic.twitter.com/1lJdTn0FyJ
