WENATCHEE — The siege of smoke lifted this weekend in the Wenatchee Valley, but may return if winds and rains die down.

After 20 days where air quality has been poor to hazardous, Wenatchee Valley residents are seeing blue skies, said Mark Turner, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Spokane. Light rains over the weekend and steady winds helped clear the smoke, but don’t necessarily mark a change in weather patterns. Air quality Monday was listed as good with a score of 28, according to the Washington State Department of Ecology.
