SMOKE/FIRE UPDATE - *NO THREAT TO COTTAGE GROVE*
Friday 8:00pm: Smoke from a fire just to the south, southwest of Cottage Grove is being blown into our area because the wind direction is coming from the south. Air Quality has decreased and is in the "Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups" category (as of time of this post). On Saturday, the winds are expected to shift and blow from a northerly direction. This will keep the smoke mostly away from us and just to our south. Otherwise, dry weather will prevail locally through the Memorial Day Holiday Weekend. As of the time of this post (8:00pm Friday), there's no further information on the fire. Remember you can see the real-time air quality (and weather station data) at grove411.com.
