While I can't answer that question, I can say that at close to ground zero for me (out of sight of any distant fires, and if any ashes rained down then I only noticed one on my walk), it was a lot hotter than it had any right to be. I sweated more than usual. The clouds blocking the sun to the point it was almost like night didn't cool it off at all. If anything, it felt hotter than usual. The clouds were helping to keep the heat in rather than letting it cool off by blocking the sun.We are getting the orange haze here in the Toronto area from the wildfires in the west. Apparently, the smoke has gone all the way to Newfoundland already. Some simulations show smoke will continue to move until Greenland is covered. That will be an interesting situation: will the smoke reduce the ground temperatures enough to keep the ice from melting or will particulates land on the ice and accelerate heat absorption?
Yeah, it was misty here last night, too. At around nine at night, when I walked to MacD to get some food, I could barely see a few feet around me. Creepy time for it to be so misty/foggy.Still early yet and the fields are misty, looks pretty spooky, but I think it'll be a nice day
