The Smoke is About to Get Even Thicker

Forest Fire Smoke Plume
The smoky haze from forest fires burning to our north in Canada is about to cast a yet darker orange-brown shadow.  A very dense plume is, at the moment of this writing, quickly approaching the Lower Susquehanna River Watershed.  Low pressure to our northeast is concentrating this 400-mile-wide wall of airborne particulates and steering it in our direction.  (NOAA/GOES image)
