KHQ.COM - A dry cold front is bringing another round of strong winds to north-central Washington, which could mean more trouble to people living in Okanogan, Chelan, Kittitas, Douglas and Grant Counties, weather forecasters said Friday.

KHQ’s Leslie Lowe said winds would continue to be a major factor in spreading the fires within the Mills Canyon and Carlton Complex fires. Low humidity levels and hot temperatures in the areas of Twisp, Pateros, Brewster, Bridgeport and Entiat would also be factors.

“Air Quality is severely compromised for most areas and we are not looking for any improvement through the next couple of days,” said Lowe.
