The haziness in the skies over parts of the US Northeast is courtesy of wildfires burning across Western Canada.
"While high pressure guarantees fair dry weather today, a plume of smoke from Canadian wildfires will persist over the region and dim the sunshine, especially over the far western counties. Skies could appear as a hazy mid-summer day," the National Weather Service of Buffalo, New York, tweeted early Wednesday morning.
Can see the wildfire smoke from Canada over the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic on satellite this morning. A particularly thick plume is over the DC area at the moment. Could continue to see it over the region at times the next few days with northwest winds aloft. pic.twitter.com/ZIfzot3lYN— Capital Weather Gang (@capitalweather) May 10, 2023
