Smoke In Casper From Area Fires

According to the National Weather Service and Emergency Management of Natrona County, the smoky haze we see in the Casper area this morning is from fires across the region and nothing burning in Natrona County.

Emergency Management Coordinator Stew Anderson issued this statement earlier today.

Please be advised that all the smoke in the area is from wildfires that are located in other counties in Wy as well as severe fires in Colorado and Montana. No fires are currently burning in Natrona county.

From the National Weather Service;

Areas of smoke from area wildfires are likely this morning across much of central Wyoming. Today is likely to be the coolest day this week in the wake of yesterday cold front, especially across the north. Breezy conditions will develop across the southern two-thirds of the area, with a few isolated dry thunderstorms will be possible in the far southern and eastern areas. Warm and dry conditions are expected to continue through the week with little to no precipitation in the forecast. This will keep critical fire conditions going through the foreseeable future.

The National Weather Service also shared this satellite image of the smoke plumes of fires in Utah and the Fontanelle fire here in Wyoming that are adding to the smoky conditions.
