smoke from fires in our northern New England skies
I was hiking yesterday (7-25-14) and noticed that despite weather forecasts for mostly sunny skies it was p/c and very hazy, almost a milky white sky. Visibility was reduced. I later learned on the news that there is smoke from wildfires 2500 miles away in western Canada!
First.. I'm amazed that smoke travels that far.
Second.. how long can we expect it to be till the smoke clears away? is it a matter of a shift in wind direction or do those fires need to stop first?
I want one of those Brilliant crystal clear blue skies for a great hike. That seems to be rather hard to come by this summer!
My guess would be your second line, a wind shift or the fires to be put out.
Though they may still smolder for a bit.
