June 6 More Smoke Haze And Scattered Thundershowers

June 6, 2023

Tuesday Morning Update

The hazy sky has become routine with widespread wildfires from the source region of our air. This time it is Eastern Canada AND a new flare-up of fires in Michigan. This will continue to spread more smoke our way, with today’s air quality being more of an issue.

Some showers will try to develop this afternoon, which will stir up the air and could bring more particulates to the surface. So, you may smell more smoke.

Shannon Berk (my wife) took this photo.

The deep red orb is also due to the filtering light through the smoke particles. The lower in the sky, the more red the sun will appear. This works in reverse as it rises in the morning.

Morning Surface Weather

The stalled storm off the coast of Maine remains a dominant force for the cooler air AND push of smoke.

  • Red Flag Warning: New Jersey
  • Fire Weather Watch: Central Pennsylvania
  • Air Quality Alert: Central Maryland/Delmarva

The cold front will develop scattered showers and reinforce the wind flow this afternoon.

I am aware there are some spelling and grammar typos, and occasional other glitches. I take responsibility for my mistakes, and even the computer glitches I may miss. I have made a few public statements over the years, but if you are new here you may have missed it: I have dyslexia, and found out during my second year at Cornell University. It didn’t stop me from getting my meteorology degree, and being first to get the AMS CBM in the Baltimore/Washington region. One of my professors told me that I had made it that far without knowing, and to not let it be a crutch going forward. That was Mark Wysocki and he was absolutely correct! I do miss my mistakes in my own proofreading. The autocorrect spell check on my computer sometimes does an injustice to make it worse. I also can make mistakes in forecasting. No one is perfect predicting the future. All of the maps and information are accurate. The ‘wordy’ stuff can get sticky.  There has been no editor that can check my work when I needed it and have it ready to send out in a newsworthy timeline. Barbara Werner is a member of the web team that helps me maintain this site. She has taken it upon herself to edit typos, when she is able. That could be AFTER you read this. I accept this and perhaps proves what you read is really from me… It’s part of my charm.
