A surreal scene has played out in some of America’s largest cities as thick smoke and haze have enveloped the Northeast as a result of Canadian wildfires. Yesterday, New York City, had the worst air quality in the entire world. The air was so unhealthy that Major League Baseball games were postponed both in New York and Philadelphia.
The Delmarva Peninsula was affected as well, although to a lesser extent. Many areas viewed the late day sun as a fuzzy orange blob in the southwestern sky that nearly appeared to be an omen of something tragic that was about to happen.
A change in wind direction and some rainfall would be helpful. Here is the official forecast for Salisbury.
Today: Thunderstorms. Areas of smoke and haze are possible, reducing visibility at times. High 74F. Winds ENE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 70%.
Tonight: Mostly clear skies. Low near 55F. Winds light and variable.
Tomorrow: Partly cloudy skies during the morning hours will give way to occasional showers in the afternoon. High 76F. Winds NW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 40%.
