Albany-  Smoke from the fires continues to filter across south Georgia. Smokey conditions are likely to continue for weeks.

Monday morning in northwest Albany near the intersection of Stuart Avenue and Dawson Road motorists were greeted with smoke. Smoke lowered visibility for drivers to just a mile at one point. The conditions however didn't put a damper on Memorial Day cookouts or keep a lot of people indoors.

"At first early this morning it was really thick, it was kind of weird but it cleared on up, pretty day," said Dexter Greene.

Greene said the smoke wasn't going to keep his family from their five year tradition of a picnic at The Parks at Chehaw.
