Less smoke expected Sunday in Fremont County; Heavier smoke in southeast Wyoming

The National Weather Service office in Cheyenne is projecting heavy smoke from west coast wildfires will settle into areas of southeast Wyoming Sunday, including Laramie and Cheyenne.

The Mullen Fire, burning 50 miles west of Laramie, has burned over 7,000 acres so far and is contributing to the dense haze.

For Fremont County folks however, there’s a bit of relief Sunday with lighter smoke projected. A timeline of the projected haze is below.

Here is the HRRR experimental simulated smoke dispersal model for Sunday exclusively. This is from 8am-9pm MDT Sunday. The Mullen Fire became much larger yesterday, and it will likely ramp up again today with winds mainly from the west propagating smoke toward Laramie, Cheyenne, and a fair portion of the western NE Panhdandle.
