Hazy and warm on Tuesday (6/5/23)
You may have noticed the haze in the sky on Monday. This is caused by wildfire smoke blowing in from the north from ongoing wildfires in Canada. Unfortunately, this smoke won’t be leaving on Tuesday. In fact, much of the smoke may be close to ground level. This could cause some air quality issues on Tuesday.
Aside from the smoke, skies will be mostly sunny. We’re forecasting temperatures in the middle-50s initially, but we should see temperatures rise into the upper-80s to low-90s during the afternoon.
Our Skeeter Meter sits in the “medium” zone over the next couple of days. While the combination of heat, humidity, and rain chances might not support high mosquito activity, I still suspect we’ll see some activity.
We’ll see another wave of low pressure arriving from the north on Wednesday, which will bring an isolated storm chance. Our best rain chance will actually be on Sunday. Thunderstorms appear likely around that time.
