Smoke:
Today, south-southwest winds will continue to transport smoke to the northeast and eastern regions of the fire area into the downslope mountain and desert communities. Additionally, the communities along the northwestern portion of the Bobcat fire may continue to experience periods of heavier smoke depending on fire behavior and fuels during the heat of the day. Winds will continue to be from the SW-W until the end of the week when a high pressure builds in the region.
