We're seeing and smelling a lot of smoke over here at Sears (off Louis Henna) and were told there was a fire off of 79? (Round Rock area) Anyone know about that? Nothing on internet anywhere about it. Of course.

I've not heard anything, but it sure does look smoky over here in Hutto. I work near that area so guess I'll find out soon enough.

It's smokey everywhere today. We are in SW Austin and it's smokey here. It's because the smoke from the Bastrop fire is starting to settle.

I lived in Denver during that really massive fire that was set by the Forest Ranger. It was so bad, ash was blowing into the house when my husband would open the windows. Ash all around the house and floating in the air. The air was hot and you could see the fire and smoke even in the foothills. I really hope that doesn't happen here, especially with my asthmatic daughter wanting to go outside.

Default Explanation from TroyKimmelWeather.com

Updated Wednesday Morning...

... Smoke Note ....
The lower visibilities in smoke.. 5 to 6 miles visibility.. that we're seeing this morning is due to the cooler surface airtemperatures and the lighter winds overnight and a resultant atmospheric temperature inversion. Beginning lsat night..the smoke from the Bastrop Complex fire plus other wires around the area.. became trapped under the temperatureinversion and that's held through the morning.The inversion should break over the next few hours.. however, with the light winds, visibility may not improvemuch..Troy
