While the New River Valley forecast has been showing signs of fall-like temperatures and calm conditions, there is a different story out west in California, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.
Nearly 4.7 million acres of land have burned, and a total of 35 deaths have occurred in three states from the West Coast Wildfires.
According to WSLS10 Meteorologist Chris Micheals, the New River Valley will begin to feel a small effect from California wildfires, as the smoke will be traveling in the jet stream, starting today and continue through Friday, Sept. 18.
