FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Notice a Smoky haze out there, here’s what’s happening!
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Smoke has arrived to the Midlands from wildfires in Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida.
We have a smoky haze across the Midlands that has moved into the region because of our southwest flow of winds. The wind from the southwest has allowed for smoke from wildfires in Mississippi and Florida to move across the entire Southeast.
Right now air quality is moderate, which means only those with very high sensitivity to smoke are effected.
UPDATE: This will improve later into St. Patrick’s Day as an approaching cold front will move any lingering smoke out of the region.
Our approaching front will sweep through Friday night into Saturday morning and will clear our air, but also bring us rain as well late into this day.
