Special Statement

… Smoke continues to push southward across north and portions of

central Georgia due to ongoing wildfires in far north Georgia and
western North Carolina...

With a predominant northerly wind flow... areas of smoke emanating
from the north Georgia and North Carolina fires will continue to
drift southward to affect portions of north Georgia including much
of the Atlanta Metro... and even portions of central Georgia.
Expect some reductions to visibility and continued smoky
conditions through tonight and again Friday. As winds lessen
tonight... the smoke may subside across the Atlanta Metro but
continue for portions of far north Georgia. For areas where the
smoke continues overnight... the visibility will drop further. As
winds increase once again on Friday... the smoke affected areas
will once again increase to include the Metro.
