Fires continue to burn in southern Jefferson county, south of Beaumont. Yesterday the wind was out of the southeast and carried a lot of the smoke into Chambers, Galveston, Liberty and Harris county including the Houston metro area. This morning there is some lingering haze and smoke but it's not as bad as yesterday.
Today, winds will be very light and more southerly. This should keep most of the smoke in Jefferson county and the Beaumont area today. We'll be keeping an eye on it. Check in with Chita and Gene this afternoon for updates.
