Clockwise circulation around a stationary high pressure system over
the southwestern United States will transport smoke from California
and Colorado wildfires into much of southeast Wyoming and the western
Nebraska Panhandle through Tuesday morning. Surface visibilities may
be reduced to five miles at times over southeast Wyoming. Persons
with respiratory ailments should avoid prolonged exposure to the
smoke and poor air quality.
