Group: Hazy CT sky is a result of the CA wildfires
The Westport Astronomical Society says the smoke from the devastating wildfires on the west coast has been drifting across the country. Now, the group says we’re starting to see the worst of it.
High altitude winds have been drifting the smoke east, according to Westport Astronomical Society President Shannon Calver.
"The smoke that you're seeing is maybe 20,000 feet up, so it's not like we're in the smoking section here, we can't smell it," Calver said. "But it's there, and it's filtering out the sun. So you get brighter sunsets, you get some vivid colors, everything's hazy."
News 12's Steve Teeling says hazy conditions will linger until a front moves through at the end of the week.
