Smoke Outlook for Cedar Creek Fire, September 17, 2022

Fire

The Cedar Creek Fire in Central Oregon grew 11,381 acres and is now 110,361 acres with 0% containment. Shifting wind directions and possible light rain in the afternoon and overnight into Sunday morning may reduce fire activity in the coming days. With increasing cloud cover and possible light rain, we are expecting light to moderate fire activity today.

Smoke

Areas east and southeast of the Cedar Creek fire continue to have the greatest impacts today, including Bend, Sunriver, La Pine, Crescent Lake, and Silver Lake. Oakridge and Eugene/Springfield will experience moderate air quality. Areas to the west and southwest will largely experience good air quality. The weather system moving into the area today may reduce overall smoke production. Changing wind directions late Sunday/early Monday may push smoke to the northwest of the fire, including the Eugene and Springfield areas.
