We’ve been tracking smoke from wildfires in the Pacific Northwest and western Canada for the last few days. That smoke has been lofted thousands of feet into the air and shoved east.
Now, we’re seeing the haze associated with it in southwest and central Virginia.
This is also helping to create some odd-looking sunrises and sunsets in our area. When smoke is present, it scatters and filters out sunlight, creating an orange/red disk appearance at the beginning or end of the day.
You can see that in a picture that I took outside the TV station early Wednesday morning.
