I agree with Cragman. I am in Mammoth where it is clear. I bouldered at Deadmans today. It looked pretty smoky north of there.

Early this morning the national weather service was not predicting smoke in the valley or wawaona. Then someone either wised up or decided that they couldn't pretend that it was going to be sunny today here in the park, so they changed it. They had predicted it a few days ago, then removed it. I wonder if they removed it because of pressure from the tourist industry.

Smoke will again have the heaviest impacts to communities in the immediate fire area, such as Groveland, Tuolumne City, Pinecrest, Greeley Hill, Columbia, and Sonora, in the morning hours. Inversions may break a little earlier allowing smoke to begin clearing sooner. Daytime transport winds should be more southwesterly, reducing impacts to the Yosemite Valley, El Portal, and San Joaquin Valley, but likely returning smoke to the Washoe and Carson Valleys, Markleeville, and other communities northeast of the fire.
Long-range outlook
Southwest transport winds will dominate for the next several days. This should keep air quality in the Yosemite Valley and areas south of the fire in the good to moderate range. Areas north and northeast of the fire, including the Lake Tahoe Basin, and Washoe and Carson valleys will see higher impacts. Communities within the immediate fire area will continue to see intense morning smoke.
