This is good news.

But almost at that moment, as the clouds dissipated, the skies became hazy on Thursday, June 29, as smoke from wildfires in Canada moved into the region.

The amount of sunlight will depend on the amount of smog produced by the smoke, as air quality is expected to be generally poor.

In the first image above, red areas are predicted to have very unhealthy air quality, orange areas are unhealthy, and yellow areas have fair air quality.

Air quality conditions are also likely to be poor on Friday, June 30, with sunny skies and temperatures below 80 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

The Air Quality Index (AQI) was created to relate the levels of different pollutants onto a scale.
