We've seen beautiful, blue, clear skies across Colorado since last week's rain and snow.
That will come to an end today as smoke and haze from wildfires out west drift down into Colorado.
Smoke will continue to filter down south through Colorado over the next 24 hours. The smoke will likely be most dense late tonight through Wednesday morning. The majority of this smoke is from wildfires burning along the west coast. pic.twitter.com/jxJZv39byH— Sam Schreier (@SamASchreier) September 15, 2020
As mentioned in the tweet above, the majority of the smoke we'll see in Colorado is from wildfires burning along the west coast. From California to Washington, nearly 5 million acres of land has burned, and many fires are far from containment.
The air quality will become moderate to possibly poor over the next few days, especially early Wednesday morning when the smoke is most dense.
Be sure and limit your time outside over the next few days, especially if you're sensitive to poor air quality or experience respiratory issues.
