Is there a wildfire burning that might affect your upcoming hike?
A new experimental smoke forecast model is available for up to 72-hours into the future.
As with all forecasts, it's not 100% reliable but it can help you get an idea of where smoke will settle at night, where the plume will go during the day, and give you some additional data before you head out on a hike, camping, or backpacking trip.
For Arizona, select from the "West/Southwest" box. The "Southwest 6-km CANSAC" model is run twice each day for the next 72 hour period. The more detailed FireWx 1-km model only runs 36 hours and covers only southern Arizona.
