Smoke from the western wildfires has returned. But, we are not as chilly this morning and will be warmer for the next few afternoons.

High Pressure centered over Western Maryland has septs storms away, but allow the smoke to return.  See more on that below. Teddy and Beta have weakened. Teh rain from Beta should remain to our south, but send in clouds for the next few days.
