Hazy Sky From Canada Wildfires
A large area of light to moderate remnant smoke from Canadian wildfires was observed moving southeast into the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley regions Tuesday morning and afternoon. It obscured the full brightness of the sun creating more of a hazy red look to the sun this morning, making for some neat weather photos. Here's one beauty shot shared to our Telemundo Facebook Page from Esteban Castaneda. The general outline of smoke spanned from Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and western Ontario southeast to the Great Lakes states and even as far south as the Ohio Valley, an impressive trek of over fifteen hundred miles. Some of the most dense smoke was right over Wisconsin and southern lake Michigan. This extensive area of smoke primarily originated from wildfires in central Saskatchewan, and northern Alberta. At this time six wildfires are in progress there. Hazy conditions will improve as a weak cold front sweeps through tomorrow.
