If you have not already noticed the smoke in the upper atmosphere or heard it on the news there is an air quality alert in effect for western Washington.

Even though Thursday morning it is a bit chilly out, do not expect that to last very long.  Warmer to hot weather is expected back to the region starting Friday.

As Grays Harbor Scanner posted last night after several questions asking if there were fires in Grays Harbor County creating the smoke haze we have an official weather alert statement from the Weather Service in Seattle.

Grays Harbor Scanner wants to remind everyone to check on neighbors, friends, and family during excessive heat warnings.  Remember that the elderly and pets are very susceptible to extreme heat conditions where they do not have air conditioning and access to cooler areas.
