Wildfire Smoke Turns Sunset Red In Washington
SEATTLE (AP) - The National Weather Service says smoke from British Columbia wildfires was the likely cause of the strong reddish hue to Sunday night's sunset as seen from Western Washington.
Meteorologist Gary Schneider in the Seattle office says forecasters noticed the color like anyone else, but it was not an issue in forecast reports.
Schneider said the smoke looks wispy in satellite images.
Changing winds Monday sent the smoke toward Eastern Washington. Schneider says Western Washington is unlikely to have a red-sunset repeat. But Eastern Washington residents could see Monday night how wildfire smoke particles turn the sunset red.
