The thick haze in the air comes from our friends to the north. Fires in Canada, especially in Alberta, are responsible for the milky skies across KELOLAND and the upper plains.
This map from Canada's government website, shows where Canada is currently experiencing fires. Much of the activity is focused in Alberta. In fact, Alberta accounts for forty-two percent of the active fires in Canada. As the smoke rises, the northwest flow in the upper layers of the atmosphere carry it to the upper plains of the United States to give us our hazy skies.
Wednesday's hazy skies will also be seen Thursday, but as we get out of the northwest flow, the haze should go away. Unfortunately, the fire danger in Canada will continue for the next several days.
