...Smoke in the Fairbanks area through Sunday...

Westerly winds pushed smoke from forest fires in the western
Interior into the Fairbanks area Saturday evening. Most of the
smoke is from a fire in the Nowitna National Wildlife Refuge
between Tanana and Ruby which flared up Saturday. Smoke is
expected to persist in the Fairbanks area into Sunday as westerly
flow continues. The smoke will dissipate Sunday evening in
Fairbanks as a weather front moves across the Interior and drops
significant rain over the fire.
