Weekend Weather: As Low Pressure Retreats, Smoke to Finally Clear
by Yaker Biegeleisen
The smoke and haze from earlier in the week—which reached historic AQI numbers of above 400–has been slowly retreating. It remained over our area due to a low pressure system over Maine which funneled the air over this area.
As the low-pressure system retreats west, it will funnel the air west, toward Iowa and western New York, the smoke leaves our area at last.
Friday may see some showers in late afternoon and evening, making way for clearer weather over Shabbos which will see 70’s by day, 50’s at night… and, blessedly, no smoke.
