The smoke hasn’t gone anywhere and while some slight improvement is possible in the Spokane area around lunchtime, there’s no reason to go about your Friday with any other impression than that it’s going to be smoked out.

The weather doesn’t look much better this weekend. it will be hot and hazy to start with more smoke and a strong breeze off of the Cascades. Temperatures will be close to 100 on Saturday and “cool off” to the mid 90s on Sunday. Thankfully cooler, less smoky conditions are on the way after a cold front passes early next week.
