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.
