Smoke from wildfires west of Colorado cause hazy skies in the Mile High City

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012 6:48pm MDT

Smoke from wildfires west of Colorado continue to cause hazy skies and prompt air quality warnings across the Front Range. You can expect the haze to continue tomorrow but the cold front that is expected to arrive tomorrow night should help push it out of here for at least a little while.

From the National Weather Service: “All the haze and smoke in the air this evening is from yesterday’s fire blowups in the Northwest United States. There are numerous active fires, with the most extreme fire activity found in Idaho at the present time. You can easily depict the large plumes of smoke that those fires sent up again this afternoon in this visible satellite imagery. The smoke and haze will likely remain in our area until a strong cold front moves through the region early Wednesday evening.”
