Weather service forecasts smoky skies in Washington state

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — The National Weather Service in Seattle has said smoke from the wildfires in northern California could arrive in Puget Sound this week. The News Tribune reported that the smoke is expected to haze the skies Tuesday night or Wednesday morning and linger for up to three days. The service said Monday that it is unclear how much smoke they are expecting. The wildfires in northern California have burned down homes, a winery, a school and other structures, and has forced about 30,000 residents to evacuate as of Monday. Officials say smoke from the previous fires in Washington, Oregon and California have already cleared out of Puget Sound skies.
