DENVER (CBS) – Our welcome cooling off over the eastern plains on Saturday was nice to see. But the cooling had its price. Added smoke from forest fires in Colorado and even California.
The visible GOES-16 satellite shows a plume of smoke pouring in from Route County’s Morgan Creek Fire, which increased from 300 to over 2,000 acres on Saturday.

At the same time, smoke from forest fires burning in Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and California is pouring in the NW River into Colorado as well.

On Sunday and Monday, hazy skies over the region are mixed with the sun.
