Extended Outlook:
Wildfire smoke will likely become thick again on Friday as increased winds and dry skies blow the smoke down from the Mullen, Cameron Peak, and Williams Fork fires. We'll be warmer on Friday with a cold front pushing highs back into the 60s and 70s by Saturday. Next week looks warm and dry.
