IMPACTS...Heavy smoke from California wildfires will begin to move
into northwestern Colorado Friday afternoon and spread in a
southeasterly direction across the rest of western and central
Colorado Friday night into Saturday morning. Expect the heaviest
smoke impacts in sheltered valley locations where atmospheric
mixing is more limited.

HEALTH INFORMATION...Public Health Recommendations: If smoke is
thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain
indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease,
respiratory illnesses, the very young, and the elderly. Consider
limiting outdoor activity when moderate to heavy smoke is present.
Consider relocating temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is
making you ill. If visibility is less than 5 miles in smoke in
your neighborhood, smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy.
