ORLANDO, Fla. – If you’ve noticed a light brown tint in between the clouds, it’s not your imagination. Smoke from wildfires burning in eastern Canada has made its way to Florida.
The smoke, originating from large wildfires burning near the Hudson Bay, is being transported south by an area of high pressure moving through the Tennessee River Valley.
A large storm out in the open Atlantic is also helping to force the smoke south along the East Coast of the U.S.
The smoke has become more widespread Tuesday, significantly impacting air quality in Central Florida. Most of Central Florida’s air quality is considered unhealthy.
The haze will likely be visible over Central Florida skies through at least Wednesday.
