The weekend could bring another downturn in the air quality across the mid-Atlantic and New England as winds may send some smoke farther east once again. Anyone who spends a prolonged time outdoors this weekend could experience difficulty breathing and throat irritation due to the smoky air. This week’s smoky sky could be a preview of what’s to come throughout the summer in New England as fires will likely continue to burn over Quebec into the summer, as they are in remote, heavily wooded areas.

Weather Patterns We’re Watching
Next week the smoke is swept away, and air quality improves as a significant shift in the weather pattern as the winds will force smoke back into Canada.
