Haze seen in the region today is from wildfire smoke in the West.
"The smoke will not affect air quality across our area since it's so high up in the atmosphere," the National Weather Service in Cleveland said in a tweet. "This will likely stick around for the next few days."
We told you it was coming yesterday, now check out the hazy appearance to the GOES-16 GeoColor imagery over the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley. That's smoke from wildfires out west. It's high up in the atmosphere so it'll produce a hazy looking sky and some pretty sunrises/sunsets. pic.twitter.com/6tGbetFZA2— NWS Charleston, WV (@NWSCharlestonWV) July 19, 2021
