BC, yes. Damn i suck at reading. Or there’s a glitch in the matrix. Yes, that last thing.
My local NWS office’s prediction for tonight: Patchy smoke between 10pm and 1am. Partly cloudy, with a low around 63. Northeast wind 5 to 10 mph, with gusts as high as 15 mph.
I’m in the Chicago area, and the smoke from out west is making it here.
I didn’t even think of that. Here’s a photo from yesterday evening, on the southern shore of Lake Michigan in the Indiana Dunes National Park:
(Obviously they’re doing some sort of restoration on the dune there.)
edited to add: for those trying to figure out the cardinal directions, despite being on the southern shore I was facing approximately NW by W (for those who know the mariner compass). So no, the sun doesn’t set in the north here!
It looks surreal, like an impressionist painting.
You can see the smoke trails easily from GOES-16 here:
Sorry for the messy url!
I know, right? It didn’t look like air OR water, but rather a painted canvas.
We’ve had red suns and haze for a few evenings now in NoVa. And now air quality warnings.
Something Cezanne probably never worried about.
One thing the Impressionists were known for is depicting the horrible air quality in cities like London and Paris.
Nice going, guys.
