High Noon Haze: Smoke Gets In Your Eyes?

(Gillette, Wyo.) That wildfire smoke we mentioned yesterday ? Might actually be a reason it's so hazy today. According to "Fire Smoke Canada," a wildfire tracking site, high winds are pushing all that smoke down over Wyoming further than predicted before. By tonight it's estimated to be over Casper. We've seen hazy skies in the Basin , Sheridan , and Thermopolis . There are reports it's smoky all the way down to Riverton and Casper. The Montana Department of Environmental Quality is listing the air quality level over Billings as "unhealthy." As of right now our level in Gillette is just slightly over "good."
