The Weather Ahead This Week

Staff Writer

Hazy skies due to several fires burning south and north of the region and a generally stagnant weather pattern will dominate the Eastern Sierra until at least Thursday, according to the National Weather Service. The smoke could increase should one particularly problematic fire, called the Rough Fire located north of Hume Lake, continue to grow like it did over the weekend. The next chance of moisture is Thursday evening and possibly Friday, the NWS said.
