Morgan Palmer, KIRO 7 Chief Meteorologist, posted a satellite view of the wildfire smoke from Alberta, Canada. 

We are getting a bit of the smoke, coming down through Puget Sound. The fires are in Alberta, which is the midsection of Canada. They are crossing the border into Montana and going east from there.

It's reminiscent of last year's sunsets (when we could see them) when the air had smoke from the wildfires all around us. That yellow layer is particularly ominous but at least it's not at ground level.

When we were being warned about global warming a decade ago, no one mentioned wildfires, yet it's turning out to be one of Puget Sound's greatest challenges from a health standpoint.
