*THIS FIRE IS NOT A THREAT TO COTTAGE GROVE* Per this morning's ODF update, the "7k" fire (13 miles east of Eugene) has grown and is now at 300-350 acres.
I expect winds to shift around today and blow more consistently from the north (albeit light). This will probably transport smoke into our local area and worsen air quality. As of 10:00am today (Saturday), air quality in Cottage Grove (per real-time data at grove411.com) was in the "good" category, but may worsen this afternoon. Otherwise, dry weather and mild temperatures will be the case over the next 5-7 days. In fact, at this time, I don't see any rain over the next 10-days.
