Wildfire smoke blanketed the San Francisco Bay Area on Wednesday, and the air was tinged with a campfire smell in some locations.

Morning, skies got clearer within a couple of days, but smoke still lingered in the North Bay and East Bay. The smoke is expected to fully clear out Thursday night into Friday morning as an “anomalously cold” early-season system dives into Northern California, the National Weather Service said.

That system will bring a chance of rain to far northern areas of the state Friday and through the weekend.

Multiple fires are burning in far Northern California, and many of them were started by lightning strikes. The largest is the Smith River Complex fire, which has torn through 83,000 acres at the California-Oregon border; it’s 7% contained.
