Near ground-level smoke is expected in Connecticut throughout the day today, Tuesday, June 6. The smoke is a result of wildfires burning in the Quebec and Ontario provinces of Canada.
The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) has issued an Air Quality Action Day for fine particulates from midnight Monday to midnight tonight (00:00-23:59).
In addition to air quality concerns, there will also be intermittent reduced visibility continuing into Tuesday afternoon. The air may also have the smell of smoke throughout the day on Tuesday.
The smoke is modeled to exit the state Tuesday night and should be completely gone by Wednesday morning
