I had no idea that the Smoke and Hazy skies extended to the East Coast... Pat Utah
We've had 3 or 4 days of haze here in the northeast ... but the high altitude smoke has even reached Europe.
Folks have to realize just how interrelated we all are. Hotter and drier conditions increase the fires on the west coast of North America which cause increased cloud cover and air quality problems on the east coast. Just as hotter conditions across northern Africa increases the dust being swept west into the equatorial Atlantic, and that dust seeds the development of more tropical storms moving west into the Caribbean and sometimes into the gulf and east coast regions.
