Wildfire Smoke Over Illinois & Missouri Monday from a New Place
If the skies have a hazy look to them Monday, it'll be for a similar reason to what Missouri and Illinois have been dealing with over the past few weeks, but this time the wildfire smoke is originating from a brand new place.
The National Weather Service issued a notice on their daily weather story advising that Monday both Missouri and Illinois could see wildfire smoke in the skies again, but this time it's not coming from fires burning in Alberta, Canada. This time, it's from Quebec.
This is a report on the wildfires that could be responsible for our skies being smoky.
As of this writing, you can already see the smoke beginning to enter Illinois and approaching Missouri according to Air Now.gov.
As of right now, the smoke is expected to affect the upper atmosphere more than anything, but it's possible that it could affect air quality for the extremely young and the elderly plus individuals with breathing problems.
It would be a good idea if you or someone you know is in one of these susceptible groups to check the Air Now website to get the latest on air quality conditions as yet another Canadian wildfire darkens our skies for at least a few days if not longer.
