I still think we get a punch of around 100 in August but like I said in  June if the heat doesn’t set up by July 4th then it won’t. We’ve done lots of 90-93 but the brutal 97+ days after day for 10-20 straight does not look in the making

What.  And late Sat I got all sniffly and sneezy and still am.

Fires?

Same in my  house.  4 of us are feeling as if allergy season is back.  I know it sounds odd, but I was wondering if maybe the trees were causing allergies again because to the cicada damage.

With folks venturing out a bit more and many not masking up, there are plenty of colds going around, too.

Goodbye blue skies hello smoke. The light is so strange in the early AM and dusk. That orange hue.

This is another thing I don't remember as a kid. I don't remember smoke from wildfires until about 10 years ago.

Wow, can smell the smoke outside

Gardening at 9:00 AM here and thought my neighbors nearby were burning yard waste, but is was the smell of smoke. Funny thing I was not ready to accept it was from the forrest fires yet,  I thought I would be able to smell the smoke,  but not first thing this morning.  

Crazy times

Pretty smoky up my way today, just a dense haze. Hint of smell of it. Woke up congested too, not sure if related.

...AIR QUALITY ALERT IS IN EFFECT FOR TUESDAY JULY 20...

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has
issued a Code ORANGE Air Quality Alert on Tuesday for the
Susquehanna Valley.

A Code ORANGE Air Quality Alert means that air pollution
concentrations within the region may become unhealthy for
sensitive groups. Sensitive groups include children, people
suffering from asthma, heart disease or other lung diseases,
and the elderly. The effects of air pollution can be minimized
by avoiding strenuous activity or exercise outdoors.

I was a teen in Harrisburg PA in the early 00s and I remember one day in August maybe 2001/2002 when there was a shocking level of wildfire smoke that made the sky brown/visibility terrible. It was much worse than what we currently have. IIRC it was due to some big wildfires in Quebec. But that stood out to me because I had never seen it before. I've been in the DC region 10 years now and I do remember some gray/hazy days due to smoke, but this one seems unique.

Models switched to hot and dry for next week with a quickness. Ops look a bit more aggressive than ensembles, but still.

This week is as advertised-normal temps and dry, but by the weekend temps and humidity will begin to creep up. Should be some scattered storm chances too esp late in the weekend into next week. Late July in the MA is never comfy for very long.

Thursday-Saturday this week looks pretty nice. It was looking like maybe we’d get another cold front early next week to keep that going. Now, not so much.

Thanks! Down on the lower eastern shore now, huge difference in the level of smoke from my area compared to Salisbury. We could barely make out downtown Baltimore when we traveled over the Key Bridge. Could make out the high rises and nothing else, on a clear day you can see beyond the city from the bridge.

I lived in Winnipeg Canada in the middle 1970’s. The smoke was unbearable… driving from Grand Forks ND to Winnipeg, there would be wildfires burning everywhere . And nobody cared, because there was nothing to burn there but peat and grasses. Thought  I was going to h*ll.

These fires burn naturally. Spontaneous combustion. They are not a new thing at all.

I understand these fires have been occurring for thousands of years. I just don't remember seeing the smoke in my backyard until recently.
